The GreenCoLAB is a collaborative platform between research and industry, whose research & innovation agenda is based on the exploration of microalgae as an essential component for the food, feed, nutraceutical, bioenergy, wastewater and cosmetic industries.
It aims to develop in short turn, new technologies, products and services in order to optimize the current industrial production of algae-based compounds for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food and animal feed, ensuring that these products respond to market needs.
"The GreenCoLab will, in the short term, optimize the current industrial production of algae-based compounds for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, feed and animal feeds, and ensure that these products respond to market needs. In the long term, we expect the GreenCoLab to diversify the range of industrial products that can be extracted from algae to include, for example, biofertilizers to recover soils and products that act on carbon sequestration or wastewater treatment".
Adelino Canário, President of the Board.
