“Advancing Algae with latest developments on Algae for
bioplastics, glycerol, therapeutic proteins, astaxanthin
and sustainable cosmetic ingredients”


Algae for Therapeutic Proteins


Dr. Stephen Mayfield, director of the San Diego Center for Algae Biotechnology was recently quoted in an interview saying  “There’s a tremendous opportunity to make therapeutic proteins in algae,”. “Because it’s agricultural, that means you have the ability to go to a very large scale and do it economically.”


For a long time, pharmaceutical companies have been making complex proteins at great cost and effort. And now with algae, the costs will be dropped dramatically and Triton is exploring this opportunity.


The company has just started to work on therapeutic proteins produced in algae, including the malaria vaccines, as well as anti-diarrheal proteins Hear from Dr Jason Pyle on the company’s step towards commercialising therapeutic proteins from Algae.


Algae for Astaxanthin


The global astaxanthin market is estimated to be around $250 million annually.


AlgaTechnologies, a  rapidly growing Israeli company specializing in the commercial cultivation of microalgae and a leading manufacturer of AstaPure willshare with us the cultivation of Haematococcus pluvialis, and optimising the conditions for efficient production of natural astaxanthin.


Asta Supreme on the other hand will talk about their specialized photobioreactor system that allows precise control over the growing environment, guaranteeing consistent high quality production of Astaxanthin. Sourced from their unique strain of algae cultivated in Nelson, New Zealand. 


Algae for Bioplastics


Breakthroughs in bioplastics  explored by Japanese scientists mainly from constituents extracted from Euglena, a species of microalgae. Dr Motonari Shibakami leading this research will share with us the technologies required to produce microalga-based plastics, including processes for efficient culture of Euglena and extraction of paramylon. 



Algae for Glycerol


The European Commission latest grant for the new EC Project on Glycerol production by Dunaliella to be led by Prof Dr Ami Ben Amotz together with a consortium of 10 European project partners Dr Amotz the key scientist on this project will share with us more details on bringing the project into the path of successful R&D.


6th AlgaeWorld ASIA promises latest news and advancements on Algae around the world that will impact Asia. Highlights include


  • Happenings in Thailand
  • - Update on Loxley Algae Biofuels Pilot Plant in Ratchaburi Province.


    - EnerGaia and their proprietary algae production system that makes it one of the most efficient producers of Spirulina.


  • Updates on Microalgae and macroalgae projects in Indonesia
  • Initiatives by India Oil Corporation in advancing algae based biofuels
  • Newly branded NXT Fuels ( previously known as Aquaflow Bionomic ) is now in a position to take multi-biomass feed stocks through to drop in hydrocarbon fuels on an economic basis. Hear from the CEO, Nick Gerritsen how the company has now shifted from research and development through to market execution and project development.


  • Heliae with its commitment on sustainable cosmetics will share novel based algae products for applications in the cosmetics industry

About TISTR activities on Algae
Currently, microalgae have been widely recognized on their vital roles on sustainable development. Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms with high potential to be used as new renewable energy (NRE) feedstock for solving world's problems of global warming (by fixation of green-house gas-CO2) and energy crisis (by oil accumulation in their biomass). As NRE feedstock, various kinds of biorefinery products such as bioactive compounds, food, feed, biofertilizer, etc. can also be developed from suitable selected strains. Owing to its geographic location in tropical zone, Thailand is one of the most suitable countries for algal biomass production.


Thailand Institute of Scientific and Technological Research (TISTR) is the only research institute which conducts the integrate activities on research (R), development (D), technology transfer (TT) and service on freshwater microalgae of over 25 years. The activities of which starting from the up-stream of establishment and management of Algal Culture Collection (ACC) for service of strains to public and for screening of our own target of useful strains to the down-stream of R&D on cultivation processes at pilot-scale outdoor cultivation plant (200,000L continuous race-way ponds) for the production of biomass or other target compounds from selected algal strains. TISTR have succeeded in R, D &TT of biofertilizer, soil conditioner and food from microalgae to private sectors. In addition, it is the only institute that provides the service of algal strains, analysis of algal toxins in tap and drinking water, resistance testing of paint and constructing materials to algae and ecotoxicity testing using algae as test strains.


Recently, under the collaboration of THINK ALGAE (Thailand Collaborative Research Network on Microalgal Energy) supported by PTT Public Company, TISTR conducts integration green technology programs on oil production from microalgae with multi-disciplinary approach by using co-processes with wastes i.e. water and flue gas to reduce production cost and developing of biorefinery co-products such as feed and fertilizer for more value-added product chains to make oil production from microalgal feedstock feasible. The crude algal oil obtained from TISTR pilot plant is continuously sent to PTT Research and Technology Institute (PTT RTI) for the proper formulation of biofuel from algal oil.
