Microalgal lipids are valuable compounds of growing interest for health applications in food, feed and pharmaceutical industries. Especially, very long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (VLC-PUFAs) such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) are essential dietary components for animals and humans. Production of such nutritional and functional lipids from microalgae is a promising strategy, but still faces some challenges to make it cost-efficient.
Calidris Bio aims to bring a technology to the market to produce microbial protein for feed and food purposes. Calidris Bio is developing a production process consisting of fermentation and conditioning of the microbial biomass. The fermentation process was optimised at lab-scale (2L fed-batch and continuous fermentation) with a productivity of 10g/L/h. The next step is to scale-up the process to pilot scale. A concomitant life cycle analysis will be performed to pinpoint hotspots thus improving
