Abstract

The project's general objective is the integrated production of microalgae and the valorisation of its biomass and extracts in different applications, namely in the food sector (human and animal food) and cosmetics, as well as the optimization of the production process and the use of industrial waste as inputs for the production of microalgae in a circular economy logic.
