FUture European League 4 Microalgal Energy (FUEL4ME)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

Microalgae are very attractive for the purpose of producing energy-rich molecules as they are photosynthetic organisms that can live in various aqueous environments, such as saline water. This gives them a low water footprint and moreover they do not have to compete with cultivated farmland. Although they are not superior to higher plants concerning photosynthetic efficiency, microalgae do have hi ...
