For this 9th edition of the event, we have gathered some key industry players to form an advisory committee and help us build the conference agenda, on top of our research.
During the Tuesday afternoon, prior to the conference, a limited number of conference delegates will receive the unique opportunity to visit the brand new ALGATEC Eco Business Park, just a short drive from Lisbon.
The ALGATEC Eco Business Park, developed by the A4F – Algae for Future group in collaboration with LusoAmoreiras and Solvay, envisions the installation of a 14.2 ha integrated platform with microalgae production and processing units in an excellent geographical location in Europe, with high solar radiation, water sources and raw materials availability.
ALGATEC Eco Business Park based in Portugal started its construction in 2017 and will be one of the largest microalgae production centers in Europe. Currently, has in the pipeline the development and implementation of three innovative projects with cutting-edge technologies for the production of microalgae and microalgal extracts to be used in the feed and food industry.
The proximity to universities and research institutes will allow the development of a cluster to support the entrepreneurs and investors in the field of microalgae with the process of knowledge-transfer between applied research, industrial production, product development and commercialisation.
The installation of ALGATEC Eco Business Park will be an essential step in strengthening a sustainable circular economy and national industrial cluster, with the first integrated park dedicated to the installation of algae biotechnology projects, based on sustainable technological development in its environmental, economic and social aspects.
There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated to the conference delegates on a first come first served basis. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.
Please note that, due to compliance reasons, attendance is subject to approval from A4F – Algae for Future.

Algalíf Iceland is a commercial producer of natural products derived from microalgae. The company was founded in 2012, but began formal operations in Iceland in October 2013. The company is dedicated to solving the nutritional needs of current and future generations and currently produces high-quality astaxanthin, through cultivation of the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. Astalíf™ astaxanthin was the first step in creating microalgae-derived products using an in-house designed tubular photobioreactor (PBR) cultivation system, powered by a proprietary LED lighting system. By using this production method, Algalíf has set new industry benchmarks for astaxanthin production and surpassed industry-accepted maxima of astaxanthin content in algae biomass, as well as the overall process productivity. Algalíf has strong ties to the pristine Icelandic nature and Algalíf´s products benefit from the unique environment in which they are produced. Iceland is one of the most sustainable countries in the world and the Icelandic water is extremely pure, low in minerals and unchlorinated. This is particularly important when using algae for high-value target production, due to the high biosorption capacity of algae. The country generates 100% of its electricity from clean energy, using only 35% of its estimated potential. Algalíf´s harvesting process is very eco-friendly; our production methods allow for close to 0% water evaporation and eliminates the need to cool, heat, or move water during our production process, allowing us to conserve water.

At times when environmental problems such as global warming and air and ground pollution are so pressing, the search for alternative fuel supply and “greener” energy is vital. Current day research identified promising alternative that is becoming increasingly more popular – bio-based fuels – plant- or animal-based materials such as crops, crop residues, trees, animal fats, by-products, and wastes.
Funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, VALUEMAG project develops new magnetic cultivation and extraction techniques for microalgae. The revolutionary technology behind the process offers an innovative and eco-friendly solution that will significantly reduce the associated costs, and, thus, build more efficient microalgae-based bio-refinery systems.
The VALUEMAG technology is based on the use of magnetic nanoparticles and a soft magnetic steel cone, issue of technologic engineering research, to cultivate microalgae and to purify the high-value products resulting from their metabolism. The technology has already been tested at a small scale providing promising results.
The project is totally self-sustaining, eco-friendly and will provide socio-economic benefits to society at large. The economic benefits are also associated with a dramatic reduction in microalgae production costs, allowing this technology to become a competitive durable alternative in the current market. Social benefits will arise from the development of new and innovative biomass production plants by supporting new job creation and outside investments in local European communities.
More information about the project can be found on the official website: www.valuemag.eu
