Successful Algae Applications in Aquaculture and Agriculture

Microalgae have been of major interest for producing biofuels in de last decade. Recently, development and focus was changed towards the use of microalgae in the food, feed, materials and chemical sector as well. During the 7th International Algae Congress in Hamburg, many developments in the agricultural and aqua cultural field will be shown by presentations of the larger projects inside and outside Europe.

The potential of micro algae and aquatic biomass is enormous. The developments follow each other in rapid succession. Microalgae contain high amounts of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates, which all can be used for different markets. Worldwide basic research, pilot and demonstration projects are developed. The industry is working on the basic aspects to make commercial production of microalgae possible.

The congress program of the 7th International Algae Congress, together with the information market and poster presentations, will give a clear insight into the latest technological innovations, the economic outlook and the international developments in the algae industry. Authorities should be aware of these developments and industrial parties will benefit from it.

As significant improvements could be achieved, the organisers will trigger innovations at different levels. Companies and Institutions are invited to participate in the Awards Ceremony. Three different categories will be awarded: Innovation, Senior or Junior! Observe your particular business environment! We are looking forward to receiving your recommendations!

The conference is being organised by DLG (German Agricultural Society) and DLG BENELUX in cooperation with University of Applied Sciences Lausitz, Wageningen UR, European Society of Micro Algal Biotechnology and cofactor. An international advisory committee is preparing the program. The committee members are Otto Pulz, University of Applied Sciences Lausitz & ESMT, Birgit Schmidt-Puckhaber, Project manager Aquaculture, DLG e.V. (German Agricultural Society), Timo Enderle, CEO, cofactor & AlgaeObserver, Maria Barbosa, Director AlgaeParc, Wageningen UR and Anne Mast, Managing Director, DLG Benelux.
