Dear colleagues, dear friends,

Surplus waste nutrients, namely nitrogen and phosphorus in surface waters, and waste CO2 from various sources, are just some of the global problems that we face in the World today. Combining these sources and utilising them in micro-algal biotechnology is easy and a logical step forward for sustainability. Some of us have already begun working with microalgal technology in nutrient and water recycling research for this purpose.

A Symposium on Microalgal Biotechnology in Agriculture is to be held in Třeboň, Czech Republic, 25-26 September 2018.

We would like to bring together the research community who share a focus on:

  • using microalgal biotechnology in plant or soil treatment
  • using microalgal biomass in animal feed and in aquaculture
  • using microalgal biotechnology in waste water treatment and nutrient recycling
  • development of microalgal technology – cultivation, downstream processing

We would like you to present your research results, share your experience, discuss your approaches and methodology and talk about future prospects and collaboration.

We look forward to seeing you in September.

On behalf of the organisers,

Prof. Jiri Masojidek
