The Department of Energy has awarded the Duke University-led Marine Algae Industrialization Consortium (MAGIC) $5.2 million to help develop algae products beyond oil for biofuels. The purpose of the effort is to build an algae supply chain that is more economically viable. Products in the MAGIC program include feeds for livestock, fish, and food for humans from algae proteins.
Congratulations to Duke and the MAGIC consortium!
Duke University’s student newspaper, The Chronicle, goes in depth with the team and their research.
