Project “Algae & CO2-capture at Savona Campus”: experimental

EN3 students involved in the “Algae Project” started the experimental phase of their Feasibility Study for the development of a pilot facility to capture CO2 and produce biodiesel from algae at Savona-Campus.

The experimental phase is devoted to investigate the effects of light at  different wave-length on the algae growth. They are using Spirulina (kindly provided by Dichep Labs, Dr. A. Lodi) and N. Oculata (kindly provided by Dichep Labs, Prof. M. Rovatti) in “low cost” semi-batch reactors lighted rgb led.
