Scottish co unveils GBP2m renewables-powered algal project

Argyll, Scotland-based firm Xanthella Ltd last week announced the start of a GBP-2-million (USD 2.8m/EUR 2.5m) two-year project, called Algal Solutions for Local Energy Economy. The Xanthella-led project has secured GBP 500,000 from the Scottish government's Local Energy Challenge Fund to fund the first year of feasibility studies. If this is successful, an algal production facility will be built at Ardnamurchan, a remote area of Scotland, which Xanthella says will be the largest in the UK. Source: SeeNews 13/6/2016
