AlgaEurope 2018 Site visit: AlgaePARC, 3 December 2018
AlgaePARC develops sustainable processes for cost effective conversion of sunlight into functional products by photosynthetic organisms.
Three distinctive features guide the research at AlgaePARC
- Whole chain approach: We integrating the full production chain. Our research comprises the study of cellular processes, strain improvement, cultivation optimization, scale-up, biorefinery, product development, process design and chain analysis.
- Multidisciplinary approach: We ensure that different expertises are integrated. Both, biological and engineering aspects of cultivation and biorefinery of algae are included.
- Bridge from fundamental research to applications: Working together with more than 40 industrial partners, Provincial and National governments and EU we connect research to marketable products and business opportunities. We can develop technologies both on a lab- and pilot- scale and move from initial idea to the production processes that deliver competitive and innovative products to our industrial partners. Our practical emphasis is also reflected in the AlgaePARC outdoors and indoors facility, where different designs of scalable photobioreactors are compared.
