One of the senior researchers on the EnAlgae project has been spreading the word about her work Down Under. Dr Alla Silkina presented a talk at the 5th Congress of the International Society for Applied Phycology. This was held at the end of June in Sydney, Australia. With delegates and speakers from across the world, the prestigious event was a fantastic opportunity to explain about our project to a wide audience. Dr Silkina’s talk was headed the use of microalgae for the dual purpose of agricultural waste bioremediation and energy production.
EnAlgae celebrates a successful conference in Hamburg
The EnAlgae project sent several delegates to this year’s EU Biomass Conference and Exhibition in Hamburg to showcase the project and explain to colleagues what our work entails. Visitors to our exhibition stand were intrigued by the project and had many questions for our researchers. In particular, delegates were interested in the potential for algae as fuel, and many of them also wanted to know details of the many experiments being run across all nine pilot facilities. With only a year until the end of the project, results into those experiments are being collated and analysed to inform our final conclusions.
Stand-alone Algae Event proves a hit at EUBCE 2014
More than a hundred people attended the four sessions at our stand-alone event at the EUBCE conference this year. The day-long event focused exclusively on algae and how it fits into the biomass industry and how it can contribute to a sustainable bioeconomy. For many the event was a chance to get a better understanding of a sector which largely remains on the fringes of this sector. The topics covered during the day were cultivation, conversion methods, products and sustainability. Speakers came from all over the world to deliver their learning across these four areas and the debates which followed were challenging and lively.
Summer showcase looking at the past, present and future is a big hit
More than 1600 people paid a visit to the EnAlgae laboratory at Queen’s University Belfast in Portaferry when the facility opened its doors as part of this year’s Strangford Lough Festival. Once again the event offered a fantastic opportunity to engage with the public and tell them about our work. As well as showcasing facilities, there were boat trips around the lough and a talk on seaweed in the Lough. Those who went along had a good time and learned a lot not only about the project but also about a beautiful part of the world and what it has to offer sustainable technologies.
