Multi-product biorefinery of seaweed using green solvents


An innovative and environmental-friendly technique using deep eutectic solvents (DESs) will be developed for a multiproduct biorefinery of seaweeds. The project will focus on the development and optimization of the process by knowing and controlling the interaction DES-seaweed and DES-product. Therefore, the combination of pre-treatments-extraction/fractionation- final product properties for the selected macroalgal biomass will be investigated. The techno-functional properties of the extracted products for food applications will be determined and a techno-economic evaluation of the optimal process at manufacturing scale will be provided.
