        Algae : A Multidimensional R&D Approach to Market

        Whether harvested directly from the sea or obtained by aquaculture, algae constitute a potential high value raw material possessing a variety of bioactive molecules that, depending on their respective attributes, can be destined to a variety of specific markets such as pharmaceuticals, human nutrition, animal feeding, cosmetics/dermatology, and agronomy to name only a few.  Residual biomasses from the primary algae transformation also represents high value raw materials because of their high bioactives’ content remaining. Developing high value products from this marine biosource would ease access to market of both classic meal-oriented production and added-value products.

        Promising benefits of HEMOXCell® in human Mesenchymal Stem Cells perfusion culture

        Bone substitutes are used in dental surgery, in alternative to autogenous bone graft,  for their availability without the requirement of a second surgical site. As a solution, tissue engineering strategies could provide an osteogenic character to inert graft by creating a new bone-like physicochemical environment using mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). HEMOXCell® is a biological oxygen carrier extracted from the worm Nereis virens. We have evaluated the impact of this marine oxygen carrier in the culture of human MSCs on BIOBank® bone substitute for bone tissue engineering applications. This haemoglobin is a GMP-compliant product usable for medical purposes with a high oxygen carrying potential and a SOD-like activity.

        Sensitivity of HEMOXCell® to oxygen variations constitute an interesting tool for bone tissue engineering by promoting scaffold cellularization in static conditions and even under in vitro perfusion. HEMOXCell® could potentially be used to promote depth oxygenation of tissue substitutes after implantation, and therefore stimulating the tissue repair.

        Food valorization of underutilized marine resources from lab scale to market

        The oceans are overfished, terrestrial livestock are destroying the planet’s climate balance but our need for protein continues to grow and food industry is confused how to feed the 9 billion people predicted in 2050. In case of marine resources, most fish stocks globally are being either fully utilized or (60%) or overexploited (30%). That is while still a large part of marine resources are underutilized and the industry produces 50-70% of by-products which are currently mainly used as animal feed or even wasted. Here we have developed the pH-shift process as a fish by-product biorefinery approach resulting in multiple products with food, nutraceutical, biomedical and/or feed application potential. The products are well characterized and application of the products in some food prototypes, are studied. Market potential of the protein as the main product of the process in Sweden and up-scaling of the protein isolation process used for the valorization of fish by-product will be also presented. It is a good example of the way that should be passed for the valorization of underutilized marine resources from lab scale to market.

        10:40 - SKÅR Christian, Manager Austevoll Seaweed Farm, Norway  

        Sustainable Cultivation, harvesting and processing of high quality Organic macroalgae

        Located WestCoast of Norway, Austevoll Seaweed was established in 2013, and are pioneers in Norwegian seaweed farming. With new technology the company will with unique patented dryers of temperature sensitive raw materials upscale the production to reach new markets


        11:05 - HENCHIRI Hichem, Botanical Extraction & fine chemistry R&D Manager, SOLABIA Group - France

        Fucoidans : Extraction, purification and examples of application in the field of skin care

        Fucoidans are widespread cost-effective sulfated marine polysaccharides which have raised interest in the scientific community over last decades for their wide spectrum of bioactivities. These molecules can be valued in the field of skin care and represent a large source of innovation. This is shown through two examples of active ingredients.

        Screening of commercially exploitable enzymes from marine biodiversity: the innovative INMARE approach

        About 40% of the industrial processes in 2030 will be based on enzymatic conversions and Industrial Chemistry need to be able to cope with the demand of new enzymes. The INMARE project exploits marine resources and innovatives tools to deliver such new enzymes.
