ALGAESOLUTIONS

A research project with the object to find solutions to improve growth, induce high value metabolites and detect contaminants to produce novel algal products

ALGAESOLUTIONS - Technology development

Our approaches

The two main objectives of the ALGAESOLUTIONS research project are to develop a) two innovative prototypes to improve the productivity, quality and market value of the algal biomass and b) five algal products with high commercial value: i) AllPhaeo+, a microalgal product enriched in fucoxanthin and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and ii) AllNanno+, a microalgal product enriched in the PUFA eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA); iii) AtlanticNori+, a macroalgal product enriched in phycobiliproteins and PUFA and iv) ConchoNori+, a macroalgal product enriched in mycosporine-like amino acids and phycobiliproteins; and v) CleanCulture, a kit for early detection of algal contaminants for algal producing companies.
