TransAlgae


Period: 01.04.2016 - 02.01.2020

Innehåll: The project aims to create a network of relevant stakeholders within the algae industry in the BA region. The network will answer the global need to find additional suitable biomass sources to meet the increasing demand of raw material for bioenergy, proteins and biochemical compounds. Up to date technologies will be utilized to transform waste streams into algae biomass through cost and energy efficient commercial systems suitable for the Nordic climate.The main goal is transfer of innovative solutions for the production of algae biomass from waste streams at industrial scale. Increase of equal working opportunities for both men and women in the region. This project will show clear benefits for the environment and climate, as algae cleans and recycles nutrients from wastewater and flue gases, as well as provides biomass for valuable products and biofuels. Goals1. A network of relevant stakeholders within the Botnia-Atlantica region2. Development of a cost and energy efficient scalable cultivation system 3. Development of a cost and energy efficient harvesting system4. Transformation of the algal biomass for energy production and high value products
