The inter-cluster microalgae partnership is expanding

The cooperation on the use of microalgae in industry is expanding to support ever more ambitious projects.

The cooperation between the PACA Sea Clusters, Mer Bretagne and Trimatec  has expanded to include the IAR cluster, and soon will include the Qualitropic cluster too.The IEED’s Green Stars microalgae project, which concerns bioenergies in particular, was proposed at the Call for Expression of Interest. Several members of the cluster are partners, including those of the Salinalgue project sponsored by Biocar, a subsidiary of the Suez group’s Compagnie du Vent. This project is aimed at overcoming technological obstacles to promote the cultivation and use of microalgae in salines. Plans are under way for a 10-hectare pilot site.
