Hortiplan and Hortimax join forces on algae growing project

Over the next few decades, we'll be facing the huge challenge of meeting the basic needs of the world's growing population. Microalgae (microscopic algae) are a promising alternative for the production of biomass. They have a high nutritional value and don't require fertile soil or fresh water to grow. On 25 September, a continuous photobioreactor for the cultivation of algae was officially unveiled during a seminar at Thomas More University College in Belgium. Both Hortiplan and HortiMaX supplied part of the technology for this project.
