Introduction

  Sustainable and renewable energy development has entered a new era with the potential of producing biofuel from microbes and insects. Specifically, microalgae and larvae have been recognized as the third generation of biofuel production and could potentially replace fossil fuel in the future. This short course provides intensive lecture and learning about microalgae cultivation, cell disruption & harvesting, method to grow larvae and conversion of microalgae and larvae to biofuel.  

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Learn the basic knowledge of microalgae biofuel production
  • Learn the basic knowledge of larvae biofuel production
