Uncommon Algae Applications

  Algae Europe December 2022

T​his Sci Show video, produced by Wren and hosted by Michael Aranda, showcases five relatively low-profile algae applications. While these uses are not commonly promoted, they may allow algae to play an increasingly larger and more important role in our daily lives in the not-too-distant future.

These applications are:

  • Sunscreen
  • Self-cleaning surfaces
  • Palm oil substitute
  • Night-vision goggle lenses
  • Photosynthetic skin grafts​
