AzCATI serves as a resource hub for algae-based products, finds innovative commercial uses for algae, operates as a learning environment for next generation scientists, facilitates collaboration among higher education, industry and national entities, and is a national "testbed" for algae technology.

AzCATI is Arizona's platform to spur a new industry cluster in research, development, and commercialization of products along the algal value chain. Multidisciplinary teams from biological, chemical, and engineering disciplines across academic, governmental, and industry boundaries have been formed to enable scientific discoveries, development of cutting-edge technologies, and generation of innovative solutions to key biological, engineering and economic problems critical for transformation and translation of algae into cost-affordable, sustainable sources of feedstock for biofuels and bioproducts, and environmental improvement through carbon capture and wastewater bioremediation.
