The EnAlgae documentary has been launched on the project’s YouTube account following its official unveiling at an event last month.


Panning for Green Gold: developing the algal bioeconomy tells the story of the work which has been undertaken on the project over the past four years.


It also gives an insight into the context in which the work was undertaken and offers a vision of where the research and the algal industry might now journey in the future.


“It’s clear from all the work and studies we’ve done that algae for energy alone is not a viable proposition,” said the project’s principle investigator, Professor Kevin Flynn. “This documentary offers viewers an insight into why that is.


“It also presents the project within its historical setting, outlining the political framework and technological capabilities which have operated across our partnership during the lifetime of the project.


“We hope that this film, together with our decision support toolset and Algal Information Network, will help inform and educate anyone with a passing interest in our work and the wonders of algae.”
