Algae biorefinery: proteins for technical applications

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


The concept of biorefiney was mainly inspired from the petroleum refinery concept. It reflects a process to fractionate and valorise the biomass in order to enhance the value derived from each component present in the biomass and to maximise profitability. Microalgae are an excellent source of commodities like proteins, polysaccharides, lipids and pigments. Therefore, it is worthwhile endeavour to extract and fractionate these microalgal components in the framework of a biorefinery that respects the integrity of the components of interest.
