Wageningen University

The chair group of Bioprocess Engineering of Wageningen University is a world leading research group in the field of microalgae cultivation for the use of microalgal biomass as a feedstock for the food, feed, and chemical industry.

Expertise has been built-up on microalgae strain selection, microalgae cultivation in photobioreactors, and microalgae harvesting and processing (biorefinery). Under the umbrella of AlgaePARC Bioprocess Engineering collaborates with a large number of different companies. AlgaePARC includes an outdoor pilot facility for microalgae production.
