Anne-Gaëlle Jacquin of (The Algonauts Project www.algonauts.org), Belmont, CA, USA visited my Phycospectrum lab on 15th December 2016. She has traveled all over the world to meet people working on algae and compiled the details in the algonauts web site.
How to transform a costly industrial effluents treatment process in a new source of income and employment? Using algae!
Dr. V. Sivasubramanian is Associate Professor and the Director of the Phycospectrum Environmental Research Centre (PERC) in Chennai, India. He leads research on phycoremediation. Phycoremediation is the use of macroalgae and microalgae for the removal or biotransformation of pollutants, including nutrients and xenobiotics from wastewater and CO2 from waste air. Based on his research, the first large-scale Indian phycoremediation “no waste” plant was established in 2006 in Ranipet in an alginate industry.
Check information from 2016 to discover how Dr. Sivasubramanian along with his team and collaborators around the world, expands the scope of this algae power and implement pilot plant in various industries.
