Factory –project, funded by Business Finland, focuses on producing
microalgal biomass using nutrient rich side streams. The project targets
production of algal biomass as a valuable source of bioactive
compounds, such as omega-3 fatty acids and pigments. Goal of the current
project is to create background to commercialize the microalgal
production in Finland.
Levarbio project (European Regional Developement Fund) utilizes microalgae in wastewater treatment renewable
energy production as well as sustainable production of high value
substances for food and feed.
Mixotrophy in Aquatic environments project concentrates on the mixotrophic capabilities of algae and protozoa and the impact of mixotrophy in biochemical cycles in aquatic food webs.
In Cryptophyte project the potential of cryptophytes in essential fatty acid production is studied for commercial purposes.
Focus in Algomeg project (Funded by Tekes) is in production of microalgal high value compounds for food, feed and antimicrobial products.
