Formation cluster around micro-algae

Food Tech Brainport intends to set up a cluster around algae. This is a very promising crop. They grow wherever there is water, CO2 and light. From all types of microalgae, two sorts are authorized for human consumption by the European Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority: chlorella and spirulina. These varieties are rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. In addition, algae burden the environment much less than animal protein sources. Therefore, it is a promising ingredient. Possible areas of application are: sustainable proteins, algae oil and fresh spirulina.

Opportunities for entrepreneurs

One of the challenges in the field of algae is the search for technological breakthroughs. With the technologies offered at Food Tech Brainport, in the field of mild separation, drying, preservation and our focus on maximizing the value of vegetable flows, we see opportunities to start a successful cluster around micro-algae together with partners.
