PRODIGIO - Growing sustainable biogas in Europe with microalgae

Growing sustainable biogas in Europe with microalgae

Large-scale biogas production from microscopic organisms is challenging, particularly as living systems can become unstable and die off. The EU‑funded PRODIGIO project seeks tools to predict these breakdowns.

Green Gas Mobility Summit abre las puertas de La Nave a Prodigio

Green Gas Mobility Summit abre las puertas de La Nave a Prodigio

Green Gas Mobility Summit es el evento de referencia sobre transporte sostenible en la Península Ibérica. Durante dos días, expertos de primer nivel analizarán el presente y el futuro de las soluciones tecnológicas que ya hay disponibles para alcanzar los objetivos climáticos y mejorar la calidad del aire, como el biometano, el gas sintético y el hidrógeno.

Marine plankton culture with light and oxygen in Scientific laboratory

What is Algae Culture?

Algae are a very diverse group of photosynthetic organisms that include microalgae and seaweeds (or macroalgae). As photosynthetic organisms, they use sunlight energy and carbon dioxide (CO2) to produce biomass.

Presentation of WP5 Sustainability Assessment

The overall goal of WP 5, led by ARMINES, is to evaluate and compare the potential environmental, economic and social impacts of energy production from microalgal biogas with and without the early-warning technologies developed in PRODIGIO and to identify the most sensitive aspects to be considered for future commercial application.

ICM-CSIC visits Universidad de Almería (UAL) facilities

On November the 24th, a team from the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona (Spain) visited the facilities of University of Almería (UAL) in Almería (Spain), where the experimental facilities for microalgal cultivation are located.

Read How PRODIGIO Project is Ready to Contribute to Net-Zero Emission Target by 2050

There is a long way before the world fully adopts, if possible, to net-zero emission. The International Energy Agency (IEA) recently published its report (click here to view the report or download from the link below) of a pathway to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, no matter how narrow the path, it is expected to bring huge benefits.

Earth Day!

This day is about empowering and expanding the environmental movement. As the health and wellbeing of every human being are closely interlinked with the health of our planet, fighting climate change requires persistent action on many levels.

See How Algae Could Change Our World

Charles Greene is a climate scientist who looks at the impact of climate on marine ecosystems. He’s a Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University and member of the Marine Algae Industrialization Consortium (MAGIC) which has a grant from the Department of Energy to look into the commercial viability of algal biofuels.

The Opportunity for Algae in Carbon Utilization

A recent report by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) takes a close look at using carbon emissions as a feedstock to more efficiently decarbonize economies around the world. The authors identify an enormous opportunity for algae.

Microbiome innovations for a sustainable future

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are being integrated into bioeconomy strategies around the world, including the European Green Deal. We highlight how microbiome-based innovations can contribute to policies that interface with the SDGs and argue that international cooperation in microbiome science is crucial for success.
