EnAlgae brought together 19 partners and 14 observers across seven EU Member States, with the aim to reduce CO2 emissions and dependency on unsustainable energy sources in North West Europe.
The project was developing sustainable technologies for algal biomass production, bioenergy and greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation, taking them from pilot facilities through to market-place products and services.
By developing and sharing nine pilot-scale facilities across the territory, cost and access barriers could be overcome. The facilities also gave plant operators the ability to experience the full range of physical parameters (ranging from rural countryside to industrialised areas) that are present within the region. Project participants also benefitted from financial and political support and could jointly develop and share best-practice models.
