The 2017 Readers' poll winners were recently announced for Algae Industry Magazine. In the category of laboratory equipment, FlowCam 8000 was awarded Bronze.
Gold Award: Carbon Dioxide Recycling @ Arizona State University
The Gold award went to researchers at Arizona State University, Fulton Schools of Engineering, who are exploring a way to create carbon-neutral fuels. ASU's Air Capture Technology collects carbon dioxide from the atmosphere using a technique that scrubs it from the air and then captures it so it can be reused at an affordable cost - essentially a carbon dioxide recycling program.
