By means of three different demonstrative actions, MACBIOBLUE intends to help companies develop new algae-derived products and processes in the context of Macaronesian Blue Biotechnology.
Taking advantage of our partners’ know-how, we look at the following possible applications:
- Processing and valorization of beach-cast macroalgae biomass (which is typically regarded as valueless waste)
- Evaluation of algae biomasses for bioactivity and development of bioactive products
- Use of algae-derived products in aquaculture and human nutrition
- Use of algae biomass as fertilizer in agriculture
The results of these activities and demonstrative actions are expected to reach the regional and international market, generating wealth and market diversification.
