Governor provides $2 million grant toward algae research


September 28, 2010

Gov. Jan Brewer has provided $2 million to the Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz) for the creation of the new Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI) at ASU.

The center, which will be funded and administered in part by SFAz and managed by ASU, will be located at ASU’s Polytechnic campus in Mesa. AzCATI will partner with the rapidly growing algae industry to drive Arizona into the forefront of innovation in biofuels and bio-product research and development.
