This business-oriented project aims at a new algal biorefinery, thereby bringing to the market innovative algae-based ingredients for high-end applications. These include algal terpenes for fragrances and long-chain terpenoids (carotenoids) for nutraceuticals and cosmetic actives. For this, cultivation steps, production of targetproducts and unique algae strains coming from 4 large culture collections owned by project’s partners are selected and optimised.
