Chinnathambi Velu investigated the potential of cyanobacteria for the bioremediation of ash-dam wastewater and CO₂ for biofertilizer and bioproduct synthesis. He developed cost-, water- and energy-smart biomass production algal cultivation system for the purpose he investigated. Part of his research is being implemented by farmers at Perenjori, Western Australia.
