Value chemicals and biopolymers from Microalgal biomass

Client: Confidential (UK) 

Objective: Development of investment-grade proposals for microalgae production and biorefining facility 

Scope of work: To prepare the proposal a detailed techno-economic feasibility study has been conducted for the microalgae production and processing facility. These include detailed process models, mass and energy balances, technology selection and design of photobioreactor systems for microalgae production, harvesting and processing; biorefining into several value products such as PUFA, pigments, proteins, carbohydrates, etc., as well as technology for converting biomass waste into biopolymers. In addition to this, a thorough market analysis of the mentioned value products was conducted in ordered to support broader financial and business evaluation of this technology and it’s potential.
