AlgaEnergy, using basic research coupled with its own know-how, has the mission of promoting new lines of basic research and applying and improving performance achieved in the lab at industrial level (applied research).
For that purpose, AlgaEnergy uses in its experiments its own Technological Platform for Experimentation with Microalgae (TPEM), located at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas airport. This plant is considered to be the most powerful and flexible private R&I tool for microalgae biotechnology internationally.
R&I’s project portfolio ranges from genetic engineering applied to the modification of certain microalgae’s metabolism to the development and implementation of new and more efficient systems for cultivation and processing of microalgal biomass.
AlgaEnergy leads and participates in international R&I projects with a total investment of more than EUR 80 million. AlgaEnegy leads the way with more than 150 consortiums (universities, research centers and companies), all firmly committed to progress and sustainable development.
