Fall 2013 Workshop
4-8 November, 2013, Arizona State University's Polytechnic Campus in Mesa, Arizona
Arizona State University's Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI) and the Culture Collection of Algae at the University of Texas (UTEX) together offer a comprehensive workshop program through the D.O.E.-sponsored Algae Testbed Public-Private-Partnership (ATP3) on the cultivation of microalgae, strain selection, pilot-scale cultivation, harvesting and processing, and analysis of valuable oils and co-products.
The Fall 2013 ATP3 workshop will cover practical applications of growing and managing microalgal cultures at production scale, including methods for handling cultures, screening strains for desirable characteristics, identifying and mitigating contaminants, scaling up cultures for outdoor growth, harvesting and processing technologies, as well as the analysis of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. Related laboratory and field training will include numerous hands-on opportunities for participants to collect and perform routine sample measurements, monitor cultures for contaminants, and evaluate the chemical composition of algal biomass.
This workshop is ideal for those interested in obtaining a broad overview of the management of microalgal cultures at scale, and for advanced students and trainees interested in the practical applications of microalgae. Participants are encouraged to ask questions, share information and network. Printed and electronic materials will be included, and a certificate of completion will be provided at the conclusion of the workshop. Workshop enrollment is limited to 15 participants and will be filled on a first-come basis.
