High-value agricultural substance: phycocyanin as driver of Lower Saxony algae production
The aim of the project is to create a new value chain that will make the still young branch algae production in Lower Saxony competitive in the long term and to make greater use of the large market potential of algae towards primary producers. The project focuses on produced Arthrospira (Spirulina) fresh material, which will be directly processed at the production site to a phycocyanin extract. The farmer acts on the one hand as a producer of the biomass and on the other hand as an extractor. The extract, which can already be used as a food additive, can then be marketed to product developing companies at significantly higher price. The process of extraction is also intended to enable further refinement and processing of the valuable material in the downstream area and is therefore also of interest for pharmaceutical companies.
Results and the Final report will be found here, as soon as the project is completed.
