R&D: Miracles Project

MIRACLES is an EU Framework Programme 7 Knowledge Based Bio-Economy (KBBE) project. Project number 613588.


MIRACLES is an industry-driven R&D and innovation project aimed at developing integrated, multiple-product biorefinery technologies for the production of specialties from microalgae for application in food, aquaculture and non-food products.

The focus is on the development and integration of mild cell disruption and environmentally-friendly extraction and fractionation processes, including functionality testing and product formulation based on established industrial algal strains. The project will also develop new technologies for optimizing and monitoring valuable products in the algal biomass during cultivation.


Partners of the project:
The consortium is formed by twenty-six partners from six EU countries, the associated country Norway, and International Cooperation Partner Country (ICPC) Chile, and including 11 prominent research organizations. Strong industrial leadership is guaranteed through the participation of 12 SMEs and 3 NMI/end users.
