Here at the University of Queensland, Prof Peer Schenk and his team are developing a low cost high output algae farm. This farm is solar powered, it is off the electricity grid and it uses new cost saving technology for mixing, harvesting and drying of micro algae and can also use any type of water including salt water which makes it very versatile. They can be used for animal feed, for biodiesel production, for human consumption and for health products. UQ's algae energy farm aims to show that the technology is farm ready and this could allow farmers to grow algae for feed reducing dependency on expensive nutritional supplements. Because the algae are high in nutrients, it will allow farmers to supplement the animal feed especially during the dry season. We're also working on reducing the cost for biodiesel production.
