Biochemistry & Redox Biology Seminar -- Peter J. Lammers

"A Route to Algal Biofuels via EcoSystem Services: The Case for Extremophile, Galdieria sulphuraria"

Event Detail
Date: Tuesday, February 25th
Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

Dr. Peter J. Lammers, professor, Energy Research Laboratory, New Mexico State University, will present this seminar.

Peter Lammers is Professor and Director of the Energy Research Laboratory at New Mexico State University and P.I. of a multi-institutional 2013 DOE-EERE award for Algal Biomass Yield Improvements. The presentation will focus on algal cultivation, biomass processing to energy products using hydrothermal liquefaction and nutrient recycling. The extreme challenges of large-scale algae cultivation will be discussed in the context of water resource limitations in arid regions and food/fuel constraints. Results of outdoor cultivation trials suggest multiple opportunities for biotechnology development using the Cyanidiales group of acidophilic red alga. Progress towards the goal of energy-positive municipal wastewater treatment will be described.

All Biochemistry/Redox Biology Center Seminars are free and open to the public.
