U-M researchers land $2M grant to 'cooperate with nature' on growing algae for energy
Date:7/31/2013

ivities related to the construction and operation of a multispecies algal biorefineryincluding emissions of heat-trapping carbon dioxide gas largely responsible for human-caused climate change. The results will then be compared to the impacts resulting from the construction and operation of a single-species algal biorefinery. Savage will work with researchers at Argonne National Laboratory on the comparison.

If the four-year project proves fruitful, the researchers hope that future funding could lead to the design and construction of prototypes for a commercially viable multispecies algal biorefinery. But that day is a long way off. For now, Cardinale and his colleagues are focused on 180 aquariums in the basement of the Dana Building.

"Do I feel like we're going to suddenly make algal biofuels economically viable? No, of course not. That will take a decade-long national research program and billions of dollars," Cardinale said. "But I think this project might be an important piece of the puzzle that eventually gets us there."
