About this book

The marine environment accounts for most biodiversity on our planet, while offering a huge potential for citizens' health and well-being. Its extensive resources already constitute the basis of many economic activities, but many more are expected in coming years. Marine Macro- and Microalgae covers current knowledge on uses of marine algae to obtain bulk and fine chemicals, coupled with optimization of the underlying production and purification processes. Major gaps and potential opportunities in this field are discussed in a critical manner.
