Tour of Masdar Institute and the Algae Research Laboratory

 

Masdar Institute and the Algae Research Laboratory are located on the grounds of Masdar City, one of the world’s most sustainable communities for technology. Masdar City is an emerging global hub for knowledge, business, research and development. Located 17km from downtown Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Masdar City positions companies located here at the heart of this global industry. Masdar City not only embodies Abu Dhabi’s commitment to a sustainable future but also is pioneering best practices in sustainable urban planning, design, development and operation.

 

During your visit you will tour Masdar City, learn about Masdar’s sustainability efforts and how Masdar Institute plays an integral part of the realization of that vision. In addition, you will tour the Masdar Institute’s Algae Research Laboratory, see the facilities, and learn how research in the laboratory is identifying and developing native algae strains to bolster the emerging algae industry in the UAE.
