The ALG-AD project was represented at the 24th National Symposium for Applied Biological Sciences held at the start of February in Ghent University.
Doctoral student in applied biological sciences Jai Sankar Seelam is responsible for looking after cultivation experiments in Ghent.
His poster was title 'Exploring microplate assay as a quick tool to assess the suitability of anaerobic effluents as microalgal growth media', and presented results from the activities he has undertaken to date on the project.
"The response to the poster was very good," he said. "The majority of the audience were Belgian PhD students and post docs working on research topics of Applied Biological sciences. So, they were interested in the sustainability aspect of animal feed production especially the use of cost-effective and time-saving techniques during the ALG-AD research."
