High value-added chemicals and BIoreSIns from alGae biorefineries produced from CO2 provided by industrial emissions

Objective

BISIGODOS aims to address the production of valuable algae derived chemicals, amino acids and high added-value bio-resins for coatings, printing, food and hair care and adhesives applications, starting from algae biomass fed directly with CO2 from industrial emissions (cement, steel factory, thermal power plants, etc.) as a raw material that is cost-effective and renewable. The process is assisted by solar radiation, nutrients and sea water microalgae. This approach is based on the technology developed by the Partner Biofuel Systems (BFS) to produce bio-oil. In order to develop such technology, several innovative approaches are proposed:
- New algae strains production optimization and CO2 energetic balance improvement.
-Optimization of photo-bioreactors
- Study and adaptation of separation of algae components based on hybrid technologies.
- Production of algae derived chemicals for surfactants applications and amino acids for food applications
- Production of bio-based resins from algae based fatty acids and bio-oil aromatic moieties.
Similar studies have been carried out at laboratory level to obtain a broad range of algae derived chemicals, however BISIGODOS’ project aims to work at semi-industrial scale using the BFS industrial photo-bioreactors facilities. Results obtained at this scale, under a well controlled process, will permit to validate the lab scale results and to develop new ones (mainly in the bioresin field) gaining a real knowledge of the industrial-market possibilities that the microalgae technologies offer and contributing to define the roadmap of the technology
