Vision

ATP3 serves as a learning environment for the next generation of scientists, engineers, and business leaders to help accelerate the research and development of algae-based technologies.

Our open test bed and evaluation facilities are a hub for research and commercialization of algae-based biofuels and other biomass co-products.

ATP3 aims to facilitate innovation, empower knowledge creation and accelerate growth of the emergent algal energy industry.

Objectives

COLLABORATIVE OPEN TEST BEDS

ATP3 provides access to a geographically diverse network of algal biomass production facilities. Our infrastructure enables the acceleration of applied algal research, development, investment, and commercial applications for biofuel feedstock.

HIGH IMPACT DATA

ATP3 will integrate results from practical, objective experimental design and execute long term cultivation trials utilizing TEA, LCA and computational models.
