Mark Scaife is a principal scientist at Mara Renewables Corporation (http://Maracorp.ca) who in partnership with Algal Omega 3 are producing omega-3 fatty acids via microalgal fermentation, in Liverpool. This produces large volumes of waste water rich in sulphates, phosphates and protein.
They are looking for academics who would be keen to apply their knowledge to jointly develop a solution to this waste water challenge, ideally through a BIV bid, in the first instance. Interested parties can contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org
