Michael Huesemann

January 2013
Info on algae research presented to Secretary Chu Michael's research and discoveries were part of a presentation given to Energy Secretary Steven Chu at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Tech Vacation II event this past fall in Washington, D.C. The research is helping to advance algal biofuels development. DOE-EERE Biomass Program officials presented two slides on Michael's work: one focusing on development of a validated model to predict microalgae growth in outdoor ponds, and the other highlighting his efforts in culturing microalgae under climate-simulated conditions in LED-lighted and temperature-controlled pilot-scale raceway ponds.
