Membrane Biophysics

Microalgae are easily cultivated in synthetic media but also grow in media composed of carbon and nitrogen sources originating from waste products with some trace elements. These algae grow on straw, wood, whey, draff or any other organic waste material and thus, provide a cheap biomass for renewable raw but also high value materials for the chemical industry by simultaneously fixing atmospheric carbon dioxide: a jack of all trades device! Scientific research on these algaes will reveal more and more ways of economic use
