The Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI) serves as a national testbed for research, testing, and commercialization of algae-based products such as biofuels, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and other algae biomass co-products. AzCATI provides open test and evaluation facilities for the algae industry and research community. As a part of the LightWorks initiative, AzCATI is embedded within the Polytechnic School at Arizona State University.
Since its inception in 2010 with a grant from Science Foundation Arizona, AzCATI has grown its research portfolio to more than $35 million. AzCATI currently leads the following sponsored projects:
