Participation at the 13th IWA Specialist Conference on Wastewater Ponds and Algal Technologies

We are delighted to share that our team had the opportunity to participate in the esteemed 13th IWA Specialist Conference on Wastewater Ponds and Algal Technologies, held from July 3rd to 6th. The conference provided a platform for researchers and professionals from around the world to exchange knowledge and present their latest findings in the field of wastewater treatment and algae-based technologies.

One of the highlights of our participation was the presentation titled “Effect of Microalga Grown in Pre-treated Piggery Wastewater on Wheat Seed Germination and Growth,” delivered by the dedicated researchers A. Ferreira, D. Figueiredo, F. Ferreira, B. Ribeiro, K. Ranglová, C. M. Cordovil, and L. Gouveia.

We would like to express our gratitude to the organizers of the conference for providing a platform to share our research and exchange insights with experts in the field. Our participation in this conference further strengthens our commitment to advancing the field of wastewater treatment and algae-based technologies. As we continue our journey of research and innovation, we look forward to further collaboration and knowledge sharing in the field of wastewater treatment and algal technologies.

 

Publication: Review on Random Mutagenesis

Random Mutagenesis is a strain improvement method commonly applied to microalgae. In the context of Performalgae, a review paper was published, with an overview of this technique, its advantages and challenges, and the future applications, namely in the development of promissing microalgae feedstocks.
