MACRO cascade

  • Project Description

    The overall objective of MACRO CASCADE is to prove the concept of the cascading marine macroalgal biorefinery. This is a production platform that covers the whole technological chain for processing sustainable cultivated macroalgae biomass – also known as seaweed –   to highly processed value added products. Algae based products for food, feed, cosmetics, pharmaceutical will be tested and documented for their bio-activities and health properties.
