Protein

Seaweed is made up of 5 to 30% protein depending on the class, type, season and location. These proteins are adapted to salty conditions and have great potential to serve as a food source for [...]

Carbohydrates

The main component in seaweed is carbohydrates. These offer very attractive benefits for processors due to the fact that they do not contain lignin or solid cellulose which makes processing this [...]

Seaweed

The largest biomass quantity in the world is aquatic, and is found in the form of micro- and macro-algae (seaweed). GOA-ventures focuses on (bio-refining) multiple types of valuable extractions [...]

Minerals

Seaweed do also need minerals such as nitrogen (N) and phosphorous (P) to grow but also absorb other minerals. Seaweed as such has the capability to accumulate minerals in its cell structure. The [...]

Future products

The GOA bio-refinery technology offers opportunities for the further cascading of extractable compounds from seaweed. Naturally present elements such as algal oils and fats offer one such [...]

Biorefining

The technology of the future will be the bio-refining of biomass. All types of biomass from the land and sea will be needed to feed the world population and provide us all with products [...]

Process

The bio-refinery technology of GOA-ventures consists of a few steps which are crucial to maximize value extractions. These steps include: harvesting seaweed, segregating crustaceans, fish and [...]

Products

The chosen technology can yield many potential products. However, during this first phase we are focusing on functional food-grade proteins, biogas and minerals. Our approach delivers far more [...]

Sustainable value

  The GOA technology offers a very attractive set of sustainable benefits. Starting with the fact that using seaweeds as stating material put no pressure on the limited available space on [...]
