Cornell algae project awarded $910,000 DOE grant

December 3, 2012 |

In New York, a $910,000 grant from the DOE was awarded to a Cornell research team working on an algae project aimed at redesigning a bioreactor that delivers light efficiently. The “optofluidic reactor” will deliver light to algae growing on low-cost sheets and then collect fuel through porous tubes; the reactor will be able to distribute an ideal amount of sunlight while using minimal water. The technology components are already scaled industrially, and the project will perform an economic analysis to predict future commercialization.
