Accelerating algae product development for a more sustainable future

Our mission

Algae are a versatile and sustainable renewable resource with a high potential to be utilised in a wide range of product applications. They can be cultivated without using freshwater, arable land, or added fertilisers and pesticides. Algae production can also have the additional benefit of improving the marine environment.

Algae utilisation has yet to be fully exploited.

The AlgaeProBANOS project has been created to change this, with a mission to accelerate the development of sustainable and innovative algae-based products in the Baltic and North Sea, to make the EU a world-leader in algae product development, and to support coastal societies and local economies.

Our network of partners

The AlgaeProBANOS pilots

AlgaeProBANOS is supporting a launch group of innovators in algae-based product development. Based in and around the Baltic and North Seas, these companies together with our expert partners are working on cutting-edge research into a range of algae-based products in the areas of food, feed, cosmetics, biostimulants, nutraceuticals and textiles.
