One day workshop on "Advances in Algal Biotechnology"

16th November 2015 - 19th November 2015
Mumbai, India


Algal biofuels hold promise with the ability of micro-algae to photosynthetically convert carbon dioxide to biomass and other value added products. This energetically unfavorable conversion is powered by solar radiation, available at a low energy density of 20 MJ/, on an average. Several technological challenges will need to be overcome in areas such as (i) microalgal growth, (ii) harvesting and dewatering, and (iii) conversion of biomass to biofuels and valorization in a biorefinery approach.
