Development of new activities based on Biotechnology in the Canary Islands

Activities based on biotechnology of algae which offer new possibilities of development in the sectors of industry, la agriculture and the environment.

Description

The Department of Biotechnology of the Instituto Tecnológico de Canarias has concentrated its efforts since the start of the work on the exploration of activities based on biotechnology of algae which offer new possibilities of development in the sectors of industry, agriculture and the environment. Our installations offer the ideal setting for the execution of varied projects on the numerous applications of the cultivation of microalgae.


The work of the Department is divided into two phases that are clearly differentiated which have from the beginning been supported by the achievement of a number of projects. On the one hand, the laboratory work includes the isolation of strains from samples taken in the natural environment and the search for other of interest in Collections of Cultures, the biochemical characterisation of these strains and the calculation of the productive performances under controlled conditions. The second phase involves the production on a pilot scale of the strains selected in the foregoing phase in the production plant of 1,200 m2 that the Department of Biotechnology has on its facilities at Pozo Izquierdo, in Gran Canaria.

Results

• Development of methodologies and techniques for the production of microorganisms of industrial interest (culture and processing of microalgae, production of microalgae for aquaculture and other purposes).
• Development of environmental applications of biotechnology.
• Identification, selection and characterization of bioactive substances.
