Microalgae are a promising source for proteins, lipids and carbohydrates for the food/feed and biofuel industry. In comparison with soya and palm oil, microalgae can be grown in a more efficient and… Expand
Microalgae for the production of bulk chemicals and biofuels
The feasibility of microalgae production for biodiesel was discussed. Although algae are not yet produced at large scale for bulk applications, there are opportunities to develop this process in a… Expand
Towards industrial products from microalgae
Microalgae show an enormous potential as sustainable feedstock for numerous bioproducts. The current work analyzes the feasibility of business cases for different markets of products from microalgae.… Expand
Extraction and stability of selected proteins in ionic liquid based aqueous two phase systems
Ionic liquid-based aqueous two-phase extraction of a plant protein, Rubisco (Ribulose-1,5-biphosphate carboxylase oxygenase), using Iolilyte 221 PG and sodium potassium phosphate buffer, was… Expand
Energy efficient bead milling of microalgae: Effect of bead size on disintegration and release of proteins and carbohydrates.
The disintegration of three industry relevant algae (Chlorella vulgaris, Neochloris oleoabundans and Tetraselmis suecica) was studied in a lab scale bead mill at different bead sizes (0.3-1mm). Cell… Expand

Outer membrane vesicles (OMV) contain immunogenic proteins and contribute to in vivo survival and virulence of bacterial pathogens. The first OMV vaccines successfully stopped Neisseria meningitidis… Expand
Novel astaxanthin extraction from Haematococcus pluvialis using cell permeabilising ionic liquids
Haematococcus pluvialis (H. pluvialis) is a natural source of the food colorant astaxanthin. It is characterised by a thick resistant cell wall composed of a non-hydrolysable biopolymer,… Expand
Selective extraction of intracellular components from the microalga Chlorella vulgaris by combined pulsed electric field-temperature treatment.
The synergistic effect of temperature (25-65 °C) and total specific energy input (0.55-1.11 kWh kgDW(-1)) by pulsed electric field (PEF) on the release of intracellular components from the microalgae… Expand
