Marine Braunalgen verfügen über aromatische chemische Verbindungen (Phenole), die in der Pflanzenwelt einzigartig sind. Diese Verbindungen werden als ″Phlorotannine″ (Gerbstoffe) bezeichnet. Aufgrund ihrer Rolle als natürliche Antioxidantien sind diese Verbindungen von großem Interesse für die Prävention und Behandlung von Krebs, Entzündungen, Herz-Kreislauf- und neurodegenerativen Erkrankungen. Die Extraktion von Phlorotanninen aus Braunalgen, wie sie derzeit in der Industrie verwendet werden, ist komplex und die Verfahren zur Biosynthese dieser natürlichen chemischen Verbindungen waren bislang nur unzureichend bekannt.

TNO and algae cultivator “Algae Food and Fuel” will be building a mobile algae bio-refinery for use in a large number of spots where algae can be cultivated. The refining of algae into purified raw materials will allow these to be used as food ingredients and chemicals, thereby replacing substances with a high carbon footprint with the more sustainable option of algae-based ingredients. The start-up phase is expected to be completed after the first quarter of 2014 and this will be followed by installation at various locations for algae cultivation. Continue Reading →

When thinking about global warming, one thing usually comes to mind: man-made CO2 emissions.

While this prominent role cannot be questioned, some questions do remain regarding the exact consequences of global warming. Continue Reading →
