As AlgaeEurope 2023 convenes this week in Prague, it seems fitting to pass along this recent interview that Spirulina Source’s Robert Henrikson conducted with General Manager of the European Algae Biomass Association (EABA), Vitor Verdelho.
Vitor is also a member of the board, shareholder, and co-founder of A4F — Algae for Future, a leader in microalgae technologies. He started his first microalgae biotech company, Necton, in 1989. The company is now a European leader in the production of traditional sea salt and microalgae for aquaculture and cosmetics.
Vitor has developed and participated in more than 40 R&D projects and interacted with more than 200 different organizations in Europe. In this interview, he discusses the current state of spirulina and microalgae in Europe, describing the types of businesses that are developing around microalgae farming and manufacturing, especially for the food industry. And he shares his thoughts on where the industry is going and growing.
