WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A Purdue-based team has made it to the top 15 finalists in the AlgaePrize competition – a contest that encourages student-led teams to develop real-world solutions for issues in the algae value chain.

This marks the first year the AlgaePrize competition has been held. The competition was launched by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office.

At the initial registration, 60 teams from across the country registered for AlgaePrize. Of those 60, 15 have been selected as finalists. The top five selected teams will be deemed the winners. Each winning team will be given a $10,000 prize. In April 2023, the winning teams will present their research to a panel of judges.

The judges will then select one grand champion, which will be awarded an additional $5,000.
