AlgaEurope 2018 Conference

ALGAEUROPE 2018 offers an unique opportunity for the exchange between academia and industry. The conference will be established in a networking based environment that allows discussions on the evolution of the Algae Biomass sector worldwide and understand the role of the main European Players.

Algae are the new crop for the future. Algae contain proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins and other elements that can be used as ingredients for a large range of sectors from food & feed to nutraceutical & cosmeceuticals to biofuels. Algo-biorefineries can maximize the potential of algae applications and open new opportunities. The valorization of added-value products from algae is setting the conditions for the development of small or niche markets, which eventually can grow to larger scale.

Currently, there are in Europe several projects, from lab scale to demonstration plants and commercial facilities, aiming to accelerate the commercialization of algal products. The long path from research to pilot plants and production facilities will be shown in several presentations including some of the most relevant projects financed by the EC.

ALGAEUROPE 2018 is a unique opportunity to learn and understand the bottlenecks of algae production and commercialization and interact with the key players.

ALGAEUROPE 2018 will be a unique opportunity for all stakeholders to be up-dated on the recent industrial developments in the field with an overview of European initiatives. Keynote presentations and panel discussion will provide a high quality forum for discussion and information exchange.

ALGAEUROPE entails the third EABA and Algae Contractors’ Conference, and the 12th International Algae Congress.

The conference is organised by EABA and DLG BENELUX.

Key drivers: Production to Products & Consumer trends to Product development and Business opportunities.

I enjoy the AlgaEurope 2017 conference which by my opinion was highly successful both in science and organization. I am happy that my modest contribution assisted for the high credit you got.

We are looking forward to AlgaEurope 2018 in Amsterdam, an event which I hope to attend and share.
