Title: Optimisation of microalgae cultures for high added value pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals

Type Details: We are doing research on an integral system for the microalgae cultures rich in poly unsaturated fatty acids (among others
eicosapentaenoic acid), proteins and antioxidants for use in food
industry, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
Our SME develops a photobioreactor with an improved light distribution
system for large scale outdoors algae cultivation allowing 3-5 higher
growing yields than the conventional methods.
Further our innovative harvesting procedures are applicable to wet biomass with substantial
energy savings.
Researchers with diverse educational background (biology, biochemistry,
organic chemistry, engineering) together with collaboration in scientific
departments at European Universities provide the required competences in
the biotechnological area to be able to accomplish high technological
interdisciplinary projects.
