A sustainable multi-strain, multi-method, multi-product microalgae biorefinery integrating industrial side streams to create high-value products for food, feed and fragrance

Project description

Towards industrial-scale industrial-scale microalgae cultivation in Europe

Current agricultural and manufacturing practices are causing irreparable environmental damage. Although microalgae are a promising solution to this problem, they are underexploited as a crop. This is because microalgae products struggle to achieve the same economies of scale as conventional products. The EU-funded MULTI-STR3AM project aims to provide valuable microalgal products for large end users in the food, feed and fragrance sectors by reducing costs, increasing scale and boosting sustainability. Its products will include lipids for edible spreads, protein, carbohydrates and lipids for feed ingredients for poultry, pigs and ruminants, and protein and small organic compounds as building blocks for the fragrance industry. The project will pave the way for sustainable industrial-scale microalgae cultivation in Europe.
