IDEA is an INTERREG NWEurope project that started late 2017 envisioning the development and enrolment of economic viable value chains based on microalgae in NWEurope. The IDEA capitalization project will conclude in 2023 with an event organized by VITO to share results and conclusions related growth, harvest, processing and application of microalgae biomass framed in a value chain perspective. In the capitalization project, the potential of side-stream in algae cultivation to strengthen algae value chains in respect to economics and sustainability received special attention.
