UG26-AlGreen

Algreen aims to develop innovative algal technology to produce renewable bio-fuels. We are currently a HK based startup under HKUST and Hong Kong Science Park (STEP program). We have been awarded the gold award at the HKUST Presidents cup 2021 which is the signature UG research competition. Our technology is diverse and inter-disciplinary stemming from vertical farming of algae to genetic modification for enhanced oil to chemical extraction techniques. At the moment we have a prototype farm on campus and are simultaneously researching under advisors and professors to complete our proof of concept. We aim to target the shipping and aviation industry, where oil based fuels have no alternatives. We are rethinking energy.
