At the Forefront of Sustainable Food, Bentley Research Fellow Brings Algae to the Table
from Bentley University
Think the bright green substance that might be overtaking your neglected fish tank is useless? Think again. Though it would be too difficult to harness the power of that naturally occurring fish tank algae, a Bentley University scientist is working to create economic value from algae that can be intentionally and sustainably produced in mass quantities.
Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Michael Walsh, a research fellow in Bentley University's Center for Integration of Science and Industry who holds a doctorate in biological and environmental engineering, is developing a business commercialization plan to use industrially cultivated algae for production of energy, animal feed and even human food.
