GENetic diversity exploitation for Innovative Macro-ALGal biorefinery

Understanding Sustainable Marine Biorefineries with GENIALG at Sea Tech Week 2018

The 11th edition of Sea Tech Week will take place in Brest, France from 8 to 12 October 2018. Sea Tech Week represents thousands of participants, researchers, industrialists and decision-makers, and a unique opportunity to develop business relationships and scientific collaborations. This year, the main theme is marine bioresources, covering a broad range of discussions from resource characterisation and production to economic development. The objective being to highlight the latest technologies on offer in these different fields of application. To view more about this event, please click here.

A one-day session on Sustainable biorefinery for marine resources, led by the Station Biologique de Roscoff (CNRS) and OLMIX, partners of the GENIALG H2020 project, as well as CBB Capbiotek, will take place on Thursday 11 September. It will be the opportunity to discover pioneering companies and projects implementing the concept of large-scale integrated biorefineries in the EU. International academic and industrial references will describe advances on the process of cracking the biomass and developing a wide diversity of products. This conference will address scientific discoveries and industrial developments in the value chains for seaweed biorefineries but also for other biomass in the blue biotechnology sector.
