MULTI-STR3AM Newsletter #3
Welcome to the third newsletter of the MULTI-STR3AM project! We
bring you today all the latest news regarding MULTI-STR3AM.
This newsletter will highlight the results on microalgae
cultivation, multi-biorefinery and event participation. Scroll

produced and distributed biomass fractions to ForFarmers, IFF and
the developments of downstream processing implemented by A4F, several
fractions from different microalgae biomass have been produced. A4F
has reached microalgae protein rich fractions (>85%) and
carotenoid-rich powder to distrubute by the end-users of the
MULTI-STR3AM project: ForFarmers, iFF and UpField.
The fractions are the raw materials for the development of new
products with improved properties within the food and feed sectors, a
pursuit of the MULTI-STR3AM project. The end-users, together with
iBET, will focus now on the formulation of such products, based on
high-value ingredients from microalgae.
Don't miss the next steps of this exciting journey!

Thanks to the work develop by scientists at Algatech Centre, partner
of the MULTI-STR3AM project, a new algae, yellow Chlorella,
with a high lutein content (0.5%), was bred, having high potential
for application in food supplements.

Cross Flow filtration process at Phycom
partner of the MULTI-STR3AM, is implementing a novel filtration
process designated Dynamic Cross Flow (DCF) that links
extensively to the quality, volume, economies of scale and
sustainability principles required. This biomass filtration
system uses a tangential flow over the filter surface – the
cross-flow effect – and is generated by rotating the filter discs,
not by pumping large volumes of liquid. Fixed baffles are installed
in the filter pressure tank to create turbulences. This process of
rotary filtration enables maximum filtration performance with meagre
energy consumption. The DCF filtration safeguards algae products that
fit industry needs.
