INDO-DENMARK COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT ON HIGH RATE ALGAL BIOMASS PRODUCTION FOR FOOD, FEED, BIOCHEMICALS AND BIOFUELS
SPONSORED BY:DEPARTMENT OF BIOTECHNOLOGY (DBT), NEW DELHI
.


PROJECT OBJECTIVES:

  1. Develop promising technologies for production of alginates and beta-carotene that can be used as food supplements.
  2. Develop technologies for production of biochemicals such as pigments (chlorophylls, phycobilins) and phenolic compounds (phlorotannins, terpenes, flavonoids).
  3. Develop technologies for utilisation of algae (both micro and macro algae) with high growth rates for production of biofuels (biohydrogen, biomethane, bioethanol, and biodiesel).
  4. Development of an algal cultivation rotation system.
  5. A new concept integrating biofuel production with algal cultivation by recycling of CO2 from flue gas of gas engines towards algae growing facility and recycling of process wastewaters as nutrient enrichment for algae cultivation.
  6. Develop an innovative bioflocculation method for sustainable harvesting of microalgae.
  7. Investigate algae as biofertilisers for promotion of rice, and wheat growth.
  8. Evaluate the sustainability of utilisation of algae for food, biochemicals and biofuels production.
