Dutch designers convert algae into bioplastic for 3D printing

Dutch designers Eric Klarenbeek and Maartje Dros have developed a bioplastic made from algae, which they believe could completely replace synthetic plastics over time. Klarenbeek and Dros cultivate algae – aquatic plants – which they then dry and process into a material that can be used to 3D print objects. The designers believe that the algae polymer could be used to make everything from […]

Supercharged omega-3: DSM files patent on EPA-rich modified microalgae

DSM has developed a recombinant microalgae up to 20 times richer in EPA omega-3s than its host counterpart. Writing in its global patent filing, the ingredients major said such increased levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) were a result of multiplying the gene encodings responsible for polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) synthase in the cell. Specifically, it […]
