Project

REALM algae

Goal: The REALM project will transform nutrient-rich drain waters from soilless farms into value by unlocking the potential of microalgae. The goal will be accomplished by cultivating microalgae next to drain-water-generating greenhouses. This production will result in low-cost microalgal biomass and cleaner freshwater, increasing the circularity and profitability of microalgal production and soilless farming. In addition, a biorefinery approach will be employed to develop microalgae-based products for both agriculture and aquaculture.
