Innovative algae cell disruption technology to try

A UK academic group have developed an innovative algal cell disruption technology which uses a widely available waste material and hence reduces the energy input required for the extraction of liquid biofuels or high value compounds.
 
The team in collaboration with Cambridge Enterprise are seeking commercial partners interested in testing the technology on their seaweed or micro algae species. The team perceive the technology being particularly applied to the extraction of:
 
  • Liquid biofuels
  • Agar, alginate, carrageenan
  • DHA
  • Astaxanthin
  • Other products derived from cyanobacteria, microalgae and seaweed
