Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency and Biomass Yield in Plants and Algae

RichardSayre
Dr. Richard Sayre Presents:

Tuesday October 11th, 2016 at 4:00 PM in Anatomy/Zoology Building W118

One of the more environmentally sustainable ways to produce high energy density (oils) liquid transportation fuels is photosynthetic reduction of carbon dioxide into carbohydrates and hydrocarbons and their subsequent conversion into fuels. Photosynthetic carbon capture from the atmosphere combined with bioenergy production (combustion) and subsequent carbon capture and sequestration (BECCS) has also been proposed by […]
