Abstract

The cultivation of microalgae can play an important role in environmentalfriendly production of raw materials for biodiesel. In addition, algae offer several other useful materials for the food and chemical industry. This booklet describes the possibilities for economically viable large scale algae cultivation for the production of valuable products and the role of the new algae centre in Wageningen, AlgaePARC.
