From Anaerobic Digestion to Microalgae: Reflections from the ALG-AD networking event

Posted on

ALG-AD project partners gathered together with an international audience this week to present results from our work cultivating algae using digestate. Presentations covered the full end to end process, from digestate to algae to animal feed, and speakers took part in Q & A sessions with attendees, and all visitors were able to network in a virtual conference area. Visitors were also able to run through a demonstration of the decision support tools with the development team, as well as exploring a range of project related video and exhibition content, and accessing a virtual gift bag to take away from the event. Feedback from attendees was positive, and there were some interesting discussions with the team regarding future ideas and collaborations. We thank our project partners at AC3A for hosting such an innovative event and developing an engaging programme of ALG-AD virtual events. You can access our past webinars and videos on our YouTube channel, and follow us on social media to keep in touch with future events. Read More
