Using agri-food liquid streams for algal cultivation – POSTPONED

AD plant managers/owners, potato processing industries, and other stakeholders working on the agri-food industry producing nutrient-rich liquid streams are being invited to join the ALG-AD and Nutri2Cycle projects at a workshop, which will be held in February at its pilot facility in Oostkamp, Belgium.

Please note that the event has been postponed and the new date will be communicated soon!


The event offers delegates the opportunity to find out more about the work being done on the project and to contribute to its further development and long-term implementation. The workshop will also offer the opportunity to see first-hand the algal cultivation facility at Oostkamp, from the pre-treatment to the cultivation and harvesting steps. This facility was built by the ALG-AD project and uses liquid digestate as a nutrient source for growing protein-rich microalgae.

ALG-AD offers an exciting potential for AD plants and the agri-food sector, creating new business opportunities and developing a circular economy,” said Dr Marcella Fernandes de Souza from Ghent University.

The event is free and will be held at Innolab, Marechalstraat 70, 8020 Oostkamp, Belgium.

This workshop is a part of the Flemish Algal Month Event (FAME), which also counts with two other events on Feb 10th and 17th dealing, respectively, with developing the microalgae sector for the circular economy (organized by Radius @Thomas More) and microalgae in the food industry (organized by ILVO).

Registrations will soon open! Check the preliminary programme here!
