Microalgae Biorefinery: developing mild, scalable technologies

Microalgae are able to accumulate various products like lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. When all these products are successfully recovered, the economic potential of microalgae production becomes higher than when we are only focusing on a single product (e.g. lipids).
To obtain all the intracellular products, mild, scalable and sustainable biorefinery technologies need to be developed. This project aims to develop innovative, mild and scalable harvesting and cell disruption technologies.
