  • Project Description

    SPIRALG is the very first micro-algae biomass project at a “Demonstrator level”. The main goal of SPIRALG is to demonstrate that producing Spirulina biomass under sustainable and efficient conditions for phycocyanin extraction and potentially other valuable co-products, is economically viable. The main component of this value chain is the natural blue pigment phycocyanin which is expected to rapidly find markets in the food industry.
