WELCOME to the website of Algal Solutions.  We are a network of researchers initiated in the BioSC Workshop of the Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany in September 2018.

We continue developing algae as vehicles for sustainable nutrient recycling and water reuse in agriculture. This topic is highly critical as we are globally on the edge of our planetary boundaries, particularly with respect to phosphorous. The environmental pollution caused by current practices costs society several hundred billion US dollars each year. Algae can accumulate large amounts of nutrients from wastewater and at the same time also clean the water, thereby making a game changing difference to the sustainability of human food production.
