Algal Biotechnology Industry Roadmap Report Published

The UK has significant academic expertise, which could help increase industry capacity to culture and extract products from algae in an economic and environmentally sustainable manner. Last year, two stakeholder roadmapping workshops were held to gauge current and future opportunities conducive to creating a sustainable and robust algal biotechnology industry in the UK.

The results from the roadmapping workshops have been collated into a report, which highlights 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 capitalizing on international markets, and highlights actions required to compete in a global marketplace. It then presents 15 business case studies for a range of sectors, which were highlighted in the workshops as being of particular relevance and value for the UK. The full report can be downloaded from link.
