5 cents about VALUEMAG
VALUEMAG is a multidisciplinary and synergic project within the framework of Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) funding, operating under Horizon2020, that seeks to develop a revolutionary solution for microalgae cultivation and harvesting in order to produce and purify high-value biomolecules in an affordable and environmentally-friendly way. VALUEMAG answers to the call BBI-2016-R09 “Exploiting algae and other aquatic biomass for production of molecules for pharma, nutraceuticals, food additives and cosmetic applications” with the aim of developing an advanced magnetic method for micro-algae cultivation.
The main objectives of VALUEMAG were to develop an innovative technology able to cultivate algae in a minimum possible cost, much lower than the existing cost of micro-algae cultivation integrated into a pilot-scale bio-refinery. This new production system will have the potential to increase the efficiency and the environmental sustainability of modern bio-refineries by lowering the cost of securing cleaner energy and sustain food security.
