Algae in cylinders

Algae biotech hub to push NSW bioeconomy

NSW Government $1m grant helps drive algae-based Deep Green Biotech Hub at UTS.
A $1m NSW Government grant will support an innovative bio-manufacturing facility at UTS. Based on algae and known as the Deep Green Biotech Hub, it will connect industry, entrepreneurs and students to boost the state’s bio-economy.
The global decline of seagrass meadows is the impetus for the development of new techniques that will ultimately help coastal managers better manage and protect these vital marine ecosystems in future oceans.
Amazing as it sounds bright, bubbling wall panels filled with microalgae could be the future of sustainable building design.
Innovative and creative research is at the centre of Dr Jean-Baptiste Raina's success and is leading to professional development opportunities that are enhancing his reputation in the field of marine microbial ecology.
