Brief description In this project Australian researchers will develop processes to produce renewable energy and commodity chemicals from microalgae grown in open saline ponds, enabling sustainable production of commercial quantities of clean biofuels and commodity products for the future. Renewable energy is an essential part of Australia's low greenhouse gas emissions energy target and is central to energy security. The development of microalgal energy will help Australia's determination to meet its Kyoto target. Additional benefits will include the development of value-added co-products from microalgal biomass, which is one route to commercial success of the novel technology.
