The GENIALG project aims to boost the Blue Biotechnology Economy (BBE) by increasing the production and sustainable exploitation of two highyielding species of the EU seaweed biomass: the brown alga Saccharina latissima and the green algae Ulva spp


TITLE: GENetic diversity exploitation for Innovative macroALGal biorefinery
GRANT AGREEMENT NO: 727892
PROGRAMME: Horizon 2020
INSTRUMENT: H2020-BG-2016-1
TOTAL BUDGET: €12,224,237
DURATION: January 2017 - December 2020 (48 months)
COORDINATOR: Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)
CONSORTIUM: 19 partners from six countries
WEBSITE: www.genialgproject.eu

GENIALG will demonstrate the economic feasibility and environmental sustainability of cultivating and refining seaweed biomass in multiple use demanded products of marine renewable origin. The consortium integrates available knowledge in algal biotechnology and ready to use reliable eco-friendly tools and methods for selecting and producing high yielding strains in economically feasible quantities and qualities. In a larger frame, conservation and biosafety issues will be addressed as well as more social aspects such as acceptability and competition for space and water regarding other maritime activities. To achieve these objectives GENIALG will foster a transsectorial and complementary consortium of scientists and private companies.
