3rd Algae World Australia

26-28 Aug, 2013 - Adelaide , AUSTRALIA

Stamford Plaza Adelaide

PLEASE CLICK HERE to view upcoming event. Information here is outdated
26 Aug, 2013 - Monday
14:00

Assemble at Stamford Hotel Lobby. Depart for lab visit

14:15

Arrive lab

What you will see on this tour

  • algae cultivated on a small scale in two-metre square tanks specially built by Chemical Engineering technical staff
  • a climate controlled unit where algae bioreactors are being used to grow and study selected algae strains. Current plans are to extend the R&D work to small scale field trials of open-pond algae systems

16:00

Final Q & A. Depart back to Stamford Hotel

 

A/Prof David Lewis and A/Prof Peter Ashman is leading the research - part of an innovative $1.89 million project funded by the Federal Government - in commercial exploitation of microalgae for the production of renewable biofuels together with Prof Michael Borowitzka (Murdoch University), and other partners from Australia, India and China, including SQC Pty Ltd.


This research has led to the establishment of a joint venture company, Muradel Pty Ltd, which is responsible for the commercialisation and further development of this technology. As part of this work, David and his team are investigating the thermal processing of microalgae residue as part of an ARC Linkage project in collaboration with SQC Pty Ltd. This work will be undertaken using SACRL's fluid-bed combustion and gasification facilities at Thebarton.
