Find out more about our sponsor BUGGYPOWER!
BUGGYPOWER is a private biotech company dedicated to the design, construction and operation of microalgae production units. As microalgae life creators, BUGGYPOWERS’ mission is to capture and fix CO2 through the use of marine microalgae.
This is done in proprietary highly controlled closed photobioreactors allowing better control of growth parameters, preventing evaporation, reducing CO2 losses, preventing contamination and allowing higher volumetric productivities.
In the process, maximum quality marine microalgae are produced, using only sustainable raw materials: H20, nutrients, sunlight and CO2.
BUGGYPOWER is producing three species of marine microalgae for a wide range of applications, from cosmetics to nutraceuticals, with a special focus on feed and functional foods. Several products are already being commercialized worldwide through BUGGYPOWERS’ subsidiary company Bluevert Lab™.
BUGGYPOWER is today a reference for the model that EU is supporting as the way forward regarding Blue and Circular Economy, due to its sustainability, scalability and generation of high added-value products with significant impact on health and wellbeing.
Marine microalgae production plant in Porto Santo, Madeira, Portugal.
2,840 tubular closed photobioreactors with eight meters high,
totalling 16.000 square meters.
It has a production capacity of 60 ton dw/year using 1.100 cubic meters
of the purest sea water.

“The organizers of AlgaEurope introduce the European Union - Young Algaeneers Innovation Award”
Organizers of AlgaEurope 2021, with funding from the European Commission, are introducing the European Union - Young Algaeneers Innovation Award. Registration is open on the official website: https://algaeurope.org/innovation-award/
The European Union – Young Algaeneers Innovation Award is open to young people from companies, research institutes and other organizations involved in the Algae Biomass sector in Europe (EU and EEA countries). The deadline for submitting an application for the Innovation Award Is November 8th 2021.
This coming edition of AlgaEurope 2021 will be held over 4 days, from the 7th to 10th of December, and online only. The winners of this Innovation Award will be announced during the European Union – Young Algaeneers Innovation Awards ceremony on the last day of the conference (day 4).
The EABA already introduced the Young Algaeneers Corner during last year’s edition. The objective of the Young Algaeneers Corner is to stimulate young professionals working in the algae sector in order to share their knowledge, innovative new ideas and above all connect with each other enabling the young algae community to develop the sector further and create synergies in the field of research and development.
The European Commission has suggested a new approach for a sustainable blue economy in the EU for the industries and sectors related to oceans, seas and coasts. A sustainable blue economy is essential in order to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal and ensure a green and inclusive recovery from the pandemic.
Transitioning to a sustainable blue economy requires investing in innovative technologies. Whether this is in wave or tidal energy, algae production, development of innovative fishing gear or restoration of marine ecosystems, the objective is to create new green jobs and businesses in the blue economy.
By funding the Young Algaeneers Innovation Award the European Commission shows its commitment to transitioning to a sustainable blue economy and offers entrepreneurs and academia the possibility to contribute to this transformation by highlighting their innovative services and products which could make a positive impact to our blue economy.
For years AlgaEurope has been one of the most comprehensive global conferences about science, technology and business in the Algae Biomass sector. One of the key successes is due to the close cooperation between EABA - European Algae Biomass Association and DLG Benelux.
The organizers of AlgaEurope would like to invite all young algaeneer professionals to submit their innovations which will contribute to the further development of a sustainable future of the algae industry.

“The organizers of AlgaEurope have signed an exclusive 2-year media partnership with Algae Planet”
“AlgaEurope 2021 will be organized in digital format from 7-10 December”
The forthcoming edition of the AlgaEurope conference will once again be held in a digital format. Initially the conference was scheduled to take place in Rome, Italy, but since there are still many uncertainties with regards to the Covid-19 situation and international traveling the organizers have decided in an early stage to host the conference online.
The decision to host the conference in an online format enables the organizers to put together a dedicated program that addresses current issues within the Algae Biomass sector and offer clarity to all delegates and participating companies.
Since years AlgaEurope is one of the most global compressive conferences about science, technology and business in the Algae Biomass sector, one of the key success factors AlgaEurope is the close cooperation between EABA - European Algae Biomass Association and DLG Benelux.
The last edition of AlgaEurope, which took place online from 1-4 December 2020 welcomed 265 delegates and 188 organizations from 41 countries, in addition some 200 abstracts were submitted. The organizers are committed to attract even more delegates and organizations to the coming edition in December.
In order to do so the organizers have already started to draft a program on relevant topics within the Algae Biomass sector that will provide in-depth understanding of the sector and contribute to knowledge transfer amongst industry professionals and to those who simply want to start learning about the world of Algae.
In order to encourage even more industry professionals to submit their abstracts for AlgaEurope 2021 the organizers have already opened the call for abstracts.
The planning is that AlgaEurope 2022 will be held in a live and online format in Rome!
More details on the program will be released shortly.
