" High value-added chemicals and BIoreSIns from alGae biorefineries produced from CO2 provided by industrial emissions "

RECENT NEWS

BISIGODOS proposal work scheme.

Overview of the partners and their role in the project

The BISIGODOS 12 month meeting has taken place at AIMPLAS facilities (Valencia, Spain) on 16th October 2014.

During the meeting, partners reviewed last works carried out to date, that has been focused on the identification of specific application requirements from end users to be met by project products and in the selection of the most suitable algae strains for expected application sectors (coating, inks, health care, adhesives and food industry).

ABOUT THE PROJECT

BISIGODOS aims to address the production of valuable algae derived chemicals, amino acids and high added-value bio-resins starting from algae biomass fed directly with CO2 from industrial emissions (cement, steel factory, thermal power plants, etc.) as a raw material that is cost-effective and renewable. The process is assisted by solar radiation, nutrients and sea water microalgae. This approach is based on the technology developed by the Partner Biofuel Systems (BFS) to produce bio-oil.

New algae strains production optimization and CO2 energetic balance improvement
Optimization of photo-bioreactors
Study and adaptation of separation of algae components based on hybrid technologies
Production of algae derived chemicals for surfactants applications and amino acids for food applications
Production of bio-based resins from algae based fatty acids and bio-oild aromatic moieties

PARTNERS

The BISIGODOS consortium brings together a wealth of expertise and resources within the areas of: microalgae and photo-bioreactors production and optimization, manufacture of amino acids for food products, production of conductive polymer coatings, bio-resin development for water-based inks, bio-surfactants production and bio-PU adhesives manufacturing, and end-users in the food, flexible packaging, hair care, metal industry and paints products. The presence of main actors in the whole value chain demonstrates the critical mass of complimentary resources that will enable the BISIGODOS project to achieve its targeted industrial, scientific and societal breakthroughs and commercial success.

AIMPLAS’ fields of work are related to technological research and development on plastic materials & products and its transformation processes.
