A UK Roadmap for Algal Technologies


The UK Roadmap for Algal Technologies report signposts the strengths of the UK science base, gives a snapshot of UK and global algal industries, and presents an overview of trends and opportunities for algae–derived products and services.

Based on these, it assesses the UK's potential for profiting from international markets, and highlights actions required to compete in a global marketplace.

It then presents seven sectors which roadmap workshop participants had identified as being of particular relevance and value for the UK.

Examples of products or processes in each sector are given in case studies which evaluate their commercial, technical and environmental strengths and weaknesses.


The information provided in this report was collated between January and May 2013. The choice of sectors for the case studies is based on the ranking provided by participants of the two roadmapping workshops organised by AB-SIG in October/November 2012.
