About the author

After studying a master in biology, spec. Plant Sciences at Ghent University in 2007, I focussed on the field of environmental science. As a student with a strong interest for relevant scientific research, I decided to study the M. Sc. in Environmental Sanitation.

The opportunity to do technological research on bioenergy was provided by Prof. dr. ir. W. Verstraete at the LabMET. The thesis was titled ‘Integration of solar energy via plants to biogas and electricity‘ and is available at the library of the Ghent University.

Currently I am working as an advisor in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency policy at the department of Environment, Nature and Energy.

    Hi Arjan

    I came across your blog and thought you might be interested in this – it’s a video about a bioethanol-fuelled car taking part in the Locost motor racing Championship. The video is here – http://www.ideasforlife.tv/watch/124

    Many thanks

    Hello Arjan,

    I came across your text when I was surching for information about MFC opperated with algae. I am a student at Wageningen University, NL, and at the moment I am working on a group project about the state of art possibilities for algae use. Your text is really interesting and i would like to use it as a source, but for that I need some more inos about you to make it a valid text source. Would it maybe be possible that you sent me some nmore information? Thank you and good luck with your thesis.

    Hello Arjan,
    We are currently working on a similar programme here in Canada. It would be interesting to compare your results with ours. Could you send me a copy of your final conclusions please?
    Thank you.

    Hi Arjan,
    Thanks for your good information about algae. I like your blog very much.
    I am a student of University of Padova (Italy). I study the M. Sc. in Industrial Biotechnology. I am at the last year and now i am working on my thesis about the production of oil from microalgae. In particular I study Nannocloropsis sp. and Botriococcus braunii. It’s very interesting and i’m very motivated about this project. I’d like to know on what are u working in particular. If you want you can write to my email address and explain me better.

    Hope to read your email soon.
    Many thanks and good luck for your thesis.
