The Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation (AzCATI), located at ASU's Polytechnic Campus in Mesa, serves as a hub for research, testing, and commercialization of algae-based products. These include biofuels, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and other algae biomass coproducts. The center also serves as a learning environment for the next generation of scientists and engineers.
AzCATI provides open test and evaluation facilities for the algae industry and research community. The center can assess the performance of individual and combined unit operations across the algal value chain.
