In a joint effort, the FH Aachen's Solar Institute Jülich (SIJ) and the Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) are working on finding solutions on how to utilise microalgae for the production of biomass in an energy- and cost-efficient manner. At the FH Aachen, State Secretary Thomas Rachel MdB has now presented the grant notifications for the "AlgNutrient-UrBioSol" project. Microalgae convert carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into biomass; at the same time, they can filter substances such as phosphate, nitrate and sulphur compounds from waste water. | More Information
