Phycocyanin (TIA Seed Fund)

Optimization of phycocyanin production and extraction from mass cultivated Arthrospira

The project aims to investigate and optimise methods that affect phycocyanin production and extraction from the protein complexes through the comparison of various protein extraction methods and phycocyanin release. Ultimately developing a preliminary technology package through pilot scale production (TRL 6) for eventual deployment by an entrepreneur.



Low Tech Spiriulina (TIA ABIPP)

A low tech, cost effective, high yield Spirulina cultivation system, based on a simple bucket system, to produce fish (animal) feeds, with the expected out put a Technology Transfer Package.
