Smart Short Courses |ALGAE TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM
In this program, Smart Short Courses joins forces with Algae entrepreneur Dr. Koen Van Houtte. This is the 5th Algae Technology program after four successful editions in Europe (May 2011), San Diego, CA (April 2012), Europe (Dec 2012) and Phoenix AZ (June 2013)
Program FULLY CONFIRMED. The completely new program will look in detail at challenges in developing growing and harvesting algae for Value Added Applications Flours, Specialty Oils, Bioactives, Cosmetics, and Pharmaceuticals.
This program is made for companies and technicians, new business development and R&D as well as producers and marketeers creating novel products based on Algae.
Major topics in the technical program cover:
Investors and Fund Managers
Decision makers such as technicians, product formulators, plant engineers, processors, chemists and sales and marketing specialists.
Backgrounder from recent literature:
An overview: biomolecules from microalgae for animal feed and aquaculture (Journal of Biological Research-Thessaloniki 2014, 21:6 doi:10.1186/2241-5793-21-6; Published: 19 May 2014)
Despite being more popular for biofuel, microalgae have gained a lot of attention as a source
of biomolecules and biomass for feed purposes. Algae farming can be established using land
as well as sea and strategies can be designed in order to gain the products of specific interest
in the optimal way. A general overview of the contributions of Algae to meet the
requirements of nutrients in animal/aquaculture feed is presented in this study. In addition to
its applications in animal/aquaculture feed, algae can produce a number of biomolecules
including astaxanthin, lutein, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, phycobiliprotein, Polyunsaturated
Fatty Acids (PUFAs), beta-1,3-glucan, and pharmaceutical and nutraceutical compounds
which have been reviewed with respect to their commercial importance and current status.
