Project Title: Establishing the engineering fundaments of a new algae based phosphorus removal process

According to a recent article in Nature, global phosphorus supply, on which New Zealand agriculture depends, could be exhausted in as little as 50 years time. Ironically, one of New Zealand¿s most serious environmental problems is that we have far too much phosphorus where we don¿t want it ¿ 63% of New Zealand¿s rivers have a phosphorus concentration above guideline levels. Imagine if algae could be `triggered¿ to suck up large quantities of phosphorus from domestic, agricultural and industrial effluents on demand. Massey University researchers have shown that algae can, at times, accumulate much more phosphorus than needed for growth. However, we currently don¿t understand what conditions are needed to reliably `trigger¿ this phenomenon or which algae are responsible.

Completed Projects

Project Title: Is Algal Photosynthesis sustainable? N20 synthesis by microalgae and its consequence for the algae industry

There is currently a lack of understanding as to i) how and why N2O emissions occur, ii) if these emissions significantly impact the sustainability of microalgae cultivation, and iii) how these emissions may be reduced through targeted process operation. Using our experience in microalgae biotechnology, cell biology, N2O monitoring and modelling, we will 1) elucidate the microbial biochemical pathway(s) involved and 2) systematically monitor steady-state and transient N2O emissions from representative microalgae bioprocesses operated under a variety of conditions in order to 3) construct and validate a model that can predict N2O emissions from outdoor algae cultivation systems. This research will provide a new foundation for understanding how N2O is released in aquatic environments and may challenge the current consensus that bacteria are responsible for most of the biological N2O emitted into the atmosphere. This new knowledge also has the potential to trigger a paradigm shift in the rapidly growing microalgae industry.
