Hawaii investing $1.5 million in upscaling papaya-to-algae technology

May 1, 2018 |

In Hawaii, the Hawaii Herald-Tribune reports that a new $1.5 million program from the state’s Agribusiness Development Corp. is under development to produce algae from food waste with an eye on spoiled papaya. The project would scale up successful work done at lab scale in a test tube by the Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center using papaya as feedstock for the algae. Four 2,000-gallon tanks will be located on a 1.5-acre lot next to the Pacific Biodiesel facility in Puna.
