AZ universities to showcase algae research

This Saturday, students and researchers from all three major Arizona universities will unite to showcase their current algae projects, in particular, using wastewater to grow algae for food, fuel, and feed. Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and University of Arizona will share their work on Saturday, Nov. 2, in room 101 of the Engineering Building 69 on NAU's campus in Flagstaff.

"The three Arizona universities bring exceptional talent to the field of algae," says Milton Sommerfeld, senior sustainability scientist and co-director of the Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI) at ASU, the leading institution of the collaboration. "Our goal is to help place Arizona at the forefront of this developing technology and provide the education and training necessary to support this effort."
