Session:  TECHNOLOGIES AND INNOVATIONS IN PRODUCTION AND HARVESTING OF MICRO AND MACRO-ALGAE

Speech: Microalgae cultivation for the extraction of bioactive compounds

Microalgae are receiving increasing attention as a bio-based source of bioactive compounds for application in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Exploitation at industrial level still represents a challenging process due to the high energy consumption and the frequent use of organic solvents which pose environmental concern. Aspects considering all the production chain of bioactive compounds, from cultivation to harvesting to extraction, will be presented and special attention will be given to the specific requirements of an eco-friendly and sustainable process.
