INTRODUCTION

The development of high value microalgal products based on traditional technologies does not satisfy the economic feasibility of overwhelming capital investments and operations.   A wide range of high-value biorefinery products should be produced by use of dynamical photobioreactors and enhanced processes: pigments, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins anti-oxidants and energetical products. To promote the sustainability and circulars economy criterions of this concept the poster presents the milestones of development of the Multisectorial Microalgae Biorefinery Complexes (MMBC) as well as the main sectorial examples and their integration in the biorefinery. The economic potential assessment of microalgae biorefinery was evaluated to highlight the feasibility of the process.

CONCLUSIONS

The MMSC serves the wellbeing, preventions of environment – health protection, diminution of impacts of climate change, global warming, circular economicity and sustainable development

– Adaptability to specific needs of Europe, Asia, America and worldwide

– The implementations represent high social impacts for improving the quality of environment, protection of health, reducing the extreme climate phenomena, production of high number of microalgae, archaea biomass, biooxygen, renewable energies and valuable by-products as for example biofertilizers

– The economical efficiency is very high comparable to traditional processes by decreasing of reactor capacities, investment and operational costs, valuable bioenergetical and biotechnological products, high amount of tradable CO2, oxy-fuel burning in efficient energy production

– The concrete techno-economical parameters and other implementation cases will be determined by feasibility studies

– Boundless perspectives by introducing in industrial use of archaea, combination of processes with other microorganisms, development of technical contests by use of new R+D results

– The use of this complex ensures the biotechnology and bioenergy based sustainable development

– Research and development industrial activity mobilization, economical growth of applicants

– Education of the technology – development of the technology, high level, international, PhD
