UIUC Illni Algae was founded in 2008 by Dr. Lance Schideman to promote and advance algal-based technologies that address current environmental, agricultural, and energy concerns. These concerns include greenhouse gas sequestration from conventional power plant sources, wastewater nutrient removal and contaminant treatment, waterbody mitigation through bloom harvesting, alternative feedstock production for animal consumption, and biofuel production through lipid extraction and pyrolisis procedures.
