Algal Solutions for a Sustainable Future
With the world's population approaching 10-billion people by 2050, society will be facing a significant increase in the demands placed upon its food production system as well as a major expansion of the human-built environment. At the same time, society must reduce its detrimental impacts on climate, energy use, land use, freshwater resources, and biodiversity. These challenges will require finding sustainable alternatives to today's carbon emissions-intensive agricultural and manufacturing practices. The premise of this talk is that marine algae-based aquaculture can help close the projected gap in society's future nutritional and manufacturing demands while simultaneously improving environmental sustainability.
