Algal Biofuels Challenge

The University of Sheffield is one of eleven universities and research institutions across the UK to form part of a `UK dream team´ which will compete on the world stage in the race to commercialise algae biofuels. 

The `dream team´ of eleven leading UK institutions will work together with the Carbon Trust to find a winning formula for cultivating 70 billion litres of algae biofuel a year by 2030. This will be the equivalent to 6% of road transport diesel and a saving of over 160 million tonnes of CO2 every year. The eleven institutions were selected from over 80 initial proposals following an extensive competition and detailed assessment process.
