Wales joins EU partnership to accelerate algal bioenergy technology
On Tuesday 6 September the Welsh Assembly Government announced it was joining an EU partnership to explore the potential of algal bioenergy. The project aims to reduce CO2 emissions and dependency on unsustainable energy sources through the production of accelerated development and deployment of algal-based biomass and bioenergy technologies. The £12mn project led by Swansea University and 19 partners from across the EU has received an extra £629,000 from the Targeted Match Fund through the Welsh Government. Algal bioenergy techniques are currently immature and expensive but the project is expected to develop the technology and make it suitable for commercial exploitation.
