Research interests:

Exploring the promising opportunities for integration of co-production of algal biochar and bioenergy into algal biorefinery using pyrolysis, making it possible to achieve a net-zero carbon balance or even become carbon negative.

Such an algal biochar-bioenergy system offers solutions to address the climate crisis, such as atmospheric carbon capture and storage, products for sustainable agriculture and environmental management, offering a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution aligned with net-zero and circular economy concepts.
