FP7-ENERGY-2010-2
Funding scheme
Collaborative project
BIOFAT is part of the Algae Cluster together with two more projects
A European project supported through the
Seven Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development
BIOFAT – BIOfuel From Algae Technologies
Objective
“To demonstrate at industrial scale (10 ha) the feasibility of biofuel production from microalgae”
BIOFAT will demonstrate at 10-ha scale proven and tested technologies developed by
Consortium members at small scale. The three main targets are:

energy efficiency

economic positive result

environmental sustainability
BIOFAT will develop the Algorefinery concept through sustainability.

BIOFAT – BIOfuel From Algae Technologies
Technological Approach
 The project will integrate all the processes from single cell to biofuel
production.
 The production stage will be based on photobioreactors for inocula
production, and raceways for production of bulk biomass and induction of
oil/starch accumulation, necessary to obtain the biofuel (biodiesel and
bioethanol).
 Carbon dioxide derived from fermentation will be used.

Project description
Microalgae to biofuel Demonstration project includes:

farming area of 10-ha for microalgae cultivation

annual productivity target of 100 tons dry biomass per ha
Industrial carbon dioxide derived from fermentation to be used as raw material
Production based on different technologies:

low-energy consuming photobioreactors for inocula production
o

High productivity technology
raceway ponds for production of bulk biomass and oil/starch accumulation
o Cell oil and carbohydrate accumulation obtained by nutrient stress.
