Mixotrophy in marine microalgae for renewable biomass production

Project description

Cultivating algae as a renewable biomass source

In the search for sources of renewable energy for industry, phytoplankton known as diatoms hold a promising role because of their natural production of valuable fatty acids used as energy for a wide swathe of marine life, even in cold and low-light conditions. Despite the diatoms’ ubiquitous presence in water, their extensive cultivation is hindered by the high cost of such processes. The MMM-Rebio project aims at using local strains to study and develop mixotrophic or combined method cultivation on the Swedish west coast for potential industrial use.
