ASU researchers take a trip to Minneapolis Minnesota for the largest Algae Biomass summit in the U.S. to share and discover the latest in Algae Biofuels as an alternative fuel source.
John McGowen, project manager for the Sustainable Algal Biofuels Consortium (SABC), discusses work at Arizona State University on biochemical conversion of algae to fuels and other products. SABC is funded by a $6 million Department of Energy grant, as part of a program focused on algae-based biofuels.
ASU graduate students and researchers are working on an alternative energy source. They are creating organic solar cells to make electricity using sunlight. This research project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Basic Energy Sciences. This video was created by ASU Broadcast Journalism student, Gitzel Puente.
R.F. “Rick” Shangraw, Jr., vice president for Research and Economic Affairs, discusses the need for an alternative energy revolution in order to achieve energy independence and security. This video was produced by ASU undergraduate student Laura Palmisano, a member of the Research and Economic Affairs Communications Team.
LightWorks pulls light-inspired research at ASU under one strategic framework. It is a multidisciplinary effort to leverage ASU's unique strengths, particularly in renewable energy fields including artificial photosynthesis, biofuels, and next-generation photovoltaics.
In the fall semester, a group of graduate students created their own models for a laboratory space that could be used for light-inspired research at LightWorks. These graduate students are part of ASU's Herberger Institute of Design & the Arts. This video was created by Interdisciplinary Arts and Performance student, Alexander D. Chapin and Walter Cronkite School student, Gitzel Puente, who work as videographers/editors with the OKED communications team.
LightWorks pulls light-inspired research at Arizona State University under one strategic framework. Through a series of transdisciplinary initiatives, LightWorks is addressing the toughest energy challenges in Arizona and around the world. Produced by OKED communications.
Milt Sommerfeld, co-director of the Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI) at Arizona State University, explains the purpose of the center and some of the services it offers to the Algae industry and research community. AzCATI is a public-private partnership between ASU and Science Foundation Arizona.
