European Algae Industry Summit

Date: 17th April 2024 - 18th April 2024 Location: London - UK

The application of algae has been extensively applied throughout numerous industries including food, cosmetics, biofuels, pharma and nutraceutical. The application and cultivation of algae has many benefits ranging from increasing and restoring biodiversity for marina animals by providing habitats, to their use in food and nutrition due to their rich volume of essential vitamins and minerals. As research and technology continue to advance, the uses of algae are likely to expand further offering sustainable solutions to various global challenges.

ACI’s 12th European Algae Industry Summit 2024 will take place on the 17th and 18th April 2024 in London. The two-day event will bring together business executives, industry leaders, academics, policymakers and stakeholders from the algae industry. The summit will provide a forum to exchange information, discuss recent developments and examine possibilities as well as challenges currently facing the industry. The 12th European Algae Industry Summit will hold interactive sessions and talks by experts in the field to allow participants to gain valuable insights to the current state of the algae industry as well as collaborative efforts aimed at advancing the sector. The summit will allow for a range of networking opportunities, allowing participants to connect and interact with likeminded professionals to discuss recent developments and examine possibilities with not just algae production and cultivation, but the vast prospects for the application throughout different industry markets.

On Tuesday the 16th April 2024, a day prior to the summit a limited number of delegates will receive the unique opportunity to join a behind-the-scenes visit to the Natural History Museum, where we’ll delve into the British Algal Archives.

The Museum’s collection of algae is one of the largest in the world, with more than a quarter of a million specimens from around the globe. This tour is available on invitation basis only and is not open to general public visiting the museum.

Don’t miss your chance to join this experience led by Jo Wilbraham, the Senior Curator responsible for algae collection at the museum. By participating in this exclusive interactive tour you’ll gain insights into the ongoing and upcoming algal research initiatives at the British Museum.

There is no extra charge to attend, but spaces are limited and are allocated to conference delegates on a first-come, first-served basis. Please indicate your interest when registering for the summit.

Originy is an innovative startup, also registered as Benefit Corporation, with the goal to spread technologies to add value to CO₂ by growing microalgae and extracting elements with high added value. Originy offers technologies to use CO₂ in the context of circular economy, grounding it on the concept of bio-refinery: by way of processes of biochemical conversion, CO₂ is employed to sustain the microalgal biomass and to obtain high value-added elements from it, throughout environment friendly extraction processes.
Business areas:

  • Originy system: Design and marketing of factory plants for microalgal growth.
    Originy has a modular manufacturing facility consisting of sealed polymer-based photobioreactors, designed and produced in-house, capable of yielding 4 tons of biomass per year, and featuring a high resistance to photo-oxidation and to fouling.
  • Originy consultancy: Consultation on production and extraction processes from plant biomasses and microalgal strains.
    Originy’s production is based on the concept of Green Extraction: extraction processes that reduce energy consumption and involve the use of non-toxic, environment friendly solvents, ensuring a high-quality extract.
  • Originy factory: Production and sale of microalgae based extracts.
    Thanks to the plant’s capacity and the possibility of being able to modulate it, microalgae production is diversified and used in various sectors:
    Nutraceutical: with the cultivation of Spirulina, from which Phycocyanin is extracted at a high degree of purity thanks to a method with proprietary and patented technology in collaboration with the CNR, for the formulation of food supplements
    Agricultural: with the cultivation of Chlorella, from which high-value compounds are extracted using ultrasound technology, for the production of biostimulants.
