Welcome LGEM: a New Bronze sponsor to AlgaEurope 2023! Their commitment to innovation and algae aligns perfectly with the goals of our conference!
LGEM, a leading company in algae technology, is set to showcase advancements in autotrophic microalgae cultivation at the upcoming AlgaEurope 2023. Algae is gaining prominence as a sustainable solution, and LGEM is at the forefront with its Photobioreactors (PBRs) and the AlgaeHUB® facility.
We are thrilled to announce a sponsor of AlgaEurope 2023: SCHOTT – long-lasting solutions for bio-secure algae cultivation! SCHOTT is a renowned name in glass manufacturing industry. Their support elevates our event to new heights and reflects their dedication to a greener future.
SCHOTT is a global manufacturer of high-tech materials based on specialty glass. With pioneering spirit and passion, the company’s #glasslovers are always opening up new markets and applications since almost 140 years. One of these markets is the growing algae industry, which relies on SCHOTT’s borosilicate glass tubing for tubular glass photobioreactors (PBR).
Welcome Q.ANT as our esteemed sponsor! Q.ANT Particle Sensors revolutionize algae cultivation through real-time monitoring of photobioreactors! With Q.ANT on board, we are poised for an even more impactful and successful AlgaEurope 2023!
When cultivating algae, population vitality is crucial. However, existing monitoring procedures of bioreactors typically only track the optical density of algae cultures, which provides limited information about the viability of individual algae cells or contaminations in the bioreactor.
Q.ANT Particle Sensors enable the real-time detection and analysis of size, velocity and position of particle sizes ranging from 2 to 700 microns in liquids or gases such as powders, dispersions or aerosols. When used in a bioreactor, the sensors allow the detection and analysis of single algae cells, enabling the instant evaluation of growth phases and key cellular attributes like size, cell debris, agglomeration factor or contamination. This analysis provides real-time insights into the algae culture, enhancing the understanding of their state. Next on the product roadmap is classifying the shape of the measured particles, which could enable the discrimination of different microorganisms, for example to examine bacterial contamination or to serve as an indicator for cell vitality.
Microphyt is a biotech company that develops, produces and markets microalgae-based natural ingredients and has once again joined AlgaEurope as a gold sponsor!
After an unprecedented fundraising of €28.5 million (US$32 million) in 2019, Microphyt was selected in 2021 as a “Flagship” by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU), a European initiative to promote bioindustries at global level. In August 2021, supported by the European Union and a consortium of 11 prestigious partners, Microphyt embarked on the extension of its SCALE production platform, to build “The world’s first fully-integrated microalgae biorefinery”. The aim is to produce natural active ingredients of high value derived from unique microalgae species for the food, food supplements, feed, and cosmetics sectors, through economically-sound and environmentally-friendly processes.
Advancing Algae Biomass Research and Innovation
The eagerly anticipated AlgaEurope 2023 Conference is set to take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from 12- 15 December 2023. Organized by DLG Benelux and EABA (European Algae Biomass Association), this year's conference promises to be an extraordinary gathering of leading experts, researchers, and professionals in the field of algae biomass.
With over 450 participants expected to attend over the four-day conference, AlgaEurope 2023 aims to foster collaboration, knowledge exchange, and innovation within the algae industry. The event serves as a platform for discussing the latest advancements and breakthroughs in the field.
AlgaEurope successfully returns as a record-breaking
in-person conference in Rome!
This year’s edition of AlgaEurope, the annual conference presenting scientific findings and trends in the algae and seaweed sector, attracted 425 delegates - a record in the history of the event – hailing from 44 countries. The first in-person event after a two-year hiatus, AlgaEurope, which took place at the Ergife Palace Hotel in Rome, Italy, 13-15 December 2022, offered a three-day program delivered by more than 90 expert speakers, covering scientific, technological and business-related topics in the global algae biomass sector.
The next AlgaEurope conference will be held in Prague, 12 – 14 December 2023. Read more in the Press Release!
