Industrial development of microalgae grown in mixotrophic culture

EIMA.2.jpg

The EIMA project objective is to mass produce molecules of interest through anaerobic digestion and development of carbon substrates (industrial by-products) by microalgae.

The R&D project strategy is based on a differentiated and original approach to define the following continuum for each molecule of interest: a variety, a substrate, an optimized production process, an application.

The EIMA project aims to produce molecules of interest from microalgae grown in a mixotrophic culture which is predominantly heterotrophic (that is to say, primarily using energy from carbon substrates, in addition to the provision of light).

The aim, therefore, is a dedicated development and production process to maximise the value from industrial by-products, primarily on the production site.
