Andrew leads the Biomass Scale Up subprogram within the Macroalgal Biofuels and Bioproducts project. This program works on aquatic waste streams from diverse industries, including aquaculture, agriculture and municipal waste. It aims to optimise macroalgal biomass production and bioremediation for each waste stream at scales that are relevant to industry needs. The overarching goal is to provide a cost effective option for nutrient bioremediation and a platform for sustainable and commercially viable macroalgal biomass production.
