Development of bioethanol production process from marine algae

Research Project Outline

Biofuel production from renewable marine-biomass would be able to overcome the limitation of land and water resource. In this project, we aim to increase starch production by more than two times in Spirulina microalgae that can grow in salt water not only by establishing the mass cultivation system but also by improving photosynthesis efficiency and metabolic capacity of the microalgae. We will develop efficient bioethanol production process from algae starch by using our core technology, cell surface engineering.
