AquaFarm, big algae are co-protagonists
The cultivation and the use of the natural resources of the microalghae and the macroalgae, from the food field to that cosmetic and nutraceutico, it will be one of the principal themes of the event AquaFarm that will be held to Pordenone Fiere the next 26 and 27 January.
The algae as the acquacoltura and the vertical farming, can become a push to the economic and social rebirth of our Country. It is necessary that the awareness spreads among who has the possibility to sustain these sectors, too often visas how marginal. Also this is the objective of AquaFarm. The four sessions devoted to the algae will be coordinated and moderated by professor Mario Tredici, vice-president of EABA - European Algae Biomass Association.
The morning will open with her cultivation and the technology of the algae: the state of the art. Introduced by a panning to European level, the session it will investigate the new formalities of cultivation, the technologies of base, among which the fotobioreattoris and the functional applications of the microalghes in architecture. Besides, in an event mainly devoted to the colture in water, it will be a close examination on the production of components of derived foods mandatory really from the algae. After twenty years of search and experimentations turned to the reduction of the consumption of oceanic resources, has perhaps arrived to a point of turn.
The second session Algae for the animal and human feeding: necessity, fashion convenience? it will go over the simple one "fashion" of the consumption of algae in the kitchen, trying to understand the contribution that these simple organisms can give as stable component of the food panorama as integrators and ingredients for nourishing and healthy foods more and more. Today the greatest industrial applications of the algae find again him in the chemistry and in the cosmetics and it are to these two thematic that the afternoon sessions of January 27 will be devoted. Inside Algochimica: the applications in the field of the energy, of the treatment of the refusals and over, university researchers will introduce three European projects that have particularly innovative objectives and potentially revolutionary.
Other faced themes will be the use of the algae for the purification of the waters reflue, the production of hydrogen, the capture of the CO2 and the production of biofertilizzanti and biostimolanti (already arrived to the industrial stadium). During the conclusive session The alga does you healthy and beautiful it will speak of microalghe and macroalghe used in the cosmetic and in the nutraceutica or rather that cured foods destined affette to categories of people from rare illnesses. The employment of algae he is also extending to the pharmaceutical one, with molecules new bioattive and, in perspective, with active principles for antibiotic, antivirali and over. The session will currently introduce the most advanced searches in progress in Italy and will anticipate some themes that we will find again to Aesthetics Show, to end November 2017, always to Pordenone Fiere.
