WP1: Project Management and implementation of communication and dissemination strategies.
Activity 1.1. Management and project monitoring plans
Activity 1.2. Communication and dissemination strategies and implementation plans
WP2: Conceptualization of the valorization approach to the algae waste-stream and preassessment of the adaptability of the integrated biorefining concepts.
Activity 2.1. Characterization and compositional profile of extractable compounds still present in the potential phycocolloid-free algae waste,
Activity 2.2. Valorization of the composition of the main structure of the extracted waste biomass.
WP3: Adaptation of the sub- and supercritical fluids technologies to the in-situ fractionation and conversion of extracted biomass to value-added products.
Activity 3.1. Subcritical fluids fractionation will be carried in collaboration with the Hiperbaric facilities.
Activity 3.2. Assessment and purification of the value-added compound extracted from the algae waste-stream.
WP4: Development of a proof of the concept and techno-economic assessment of the integrated biorefinery
Activity 4.1. The developed technology will be scaled-up using the performant high pressure pilot plant installed by industrial collaborator.
Activity 4.2. Optimization and assessment of the combined cascade processes developed during the waste valorization process with the aim to develop the proof of the concept and the life cycle assessment (LCA).
