Dismukes Project Selected for Competitve Award

Charles Dismukes has a newly funded 3 year project with Rutgers' the Waksman Institute and Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences (IMCS) in collaboration with Zhejiang University in China. The project titled “Robust Microalgal Production Strains for High Yield Growth on Fossil Flue Gas: Toward Cost Effective Biofuels and CO2 Mitigation” aims to advance renewable energy technology to addresses the urgent cost-effective needs of developing countries who currently utilize biomass as principal energy resource. It will involve additional training at Michigan State University and recruitment of students and researchers from both science and engineering backgrounds. The project was funded through The Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP) at Stanford University which seeks new solutions to one of the grand challenges of this century: supplying energy to meet the changing needs of a growing world population in a way that protects the environment.
