Biorizon Group has presented to international experts the current degree of application of innovative solutions based on microalgae, cyanobacteria and bacteria that it is being developed.
In the context of the Algae Tech Conference, held earlier this month in Madrid, and organized by the international operating company Cogiton Group, the Almeria based biotechnology company has shown the degree of execution of the EU SABANA Project in which has assumed a decisive role.
Aimed at providing the latest developments in the growing microalgae industry, main actors exposed the latest technical advances and commercial challenges. Experts have shown their novelties with the purpose of helping the growth of other companies by extending knowledge and facilitating new business partners.
Biorizon’s participation focused on the presentation of the conference “SABANA PROJECT: Microalgae large-scale biorefinery for agriculture and aquaculture”, by Joaquín Pozo Dengra, director of R&D Projects of the Group, who has presented the SABANA microalgae plant built in Almería, its design and capabilities. The Biorizon Group is made up of Biorizon Biotech, Algaetech and SeaSlow, a business line based on the production of natural cosmetics.
Dr. Pozo Dengra has valued the international recognition that Biorizon Group has been awarded as a pioneer in obtaining different agronutritional products from microalgae. The commercial importance of this fact is demonstrated with an 80% share of the European market in this type of products.
Next year will see the conclusion of the SABANA project, which focuses on the production of large-scale microalgae, integrating wastewater treatment to ensure sustainability and offering biostimulant markets for agricultural production and food additives in aquaculture high value. These objectives, said the director, respond to the final purpose of achieving an integral use of biomass.
The production plant built by Biorizon in Almeria is already in a first phase of activity once the construction process is completed. It is called to be the European reference center for research and development of projects and applications derived from microalgae.
