Algae biorefinery for non-food applications

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterAcademic

Abstract

Microalgae are among the most promising raw materials for chemicals.
Their biomass is an excellent source of proteins, polysaccharides, lipids and
pigments. These fractions can be used, apart from food and feed, for nonfood
applications such as binders in coating and adhesives, surface-active
agents, green chemicals, bioplastics, plants fertilizer, and in the cosmetic
and pharmaceutical industries.
