The various sectors with potential in the development of the microalgae biotechnology form a business network that demands new products and alternative sources of energy, food and bioactive substances, within a comprehensive and sustainable profit-producing process. In this sense, the BEA is committed to its own research and technology programme according to the following strategic priorities:

Biodiversity conservation of microalgae and cyanobacteria.

BEA studies and works with different microalgae and cyanobacteria isolation and maintenance techniques.

Proliferation of harmful algae –Harmful algae blooms (HABs)– in collaboration with the Canarian Observatory of HABs

BOC Nº 131. Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 3462

BEA is involved in the monitoring, controlling and proliferation of HABs produced either, by human activities, or climate change.

Biotechnological and biochemical characterization and production of microalgal and cyanobacteria extracts for the following applications:


BEA collaborates with research centers in the characterization of exopolymers from BEA´s collection cyanobacteria.

Biopesticides and agricultural biostimulants

BEA studies the potential of certain species of microalgae and cyanobacteria and its metabolites for possible agriculture applications.


BEA investigates the ability of certain species of microalgae and cyanobacteria to purify effluents from wastewater treatment.

Bioactives (antibiotics, antivirals, antitumoral, etc).

BEA collaborates with various biotech companies in the characterization of metabolites from cyanobacteria for pharmacological applications.


BEA participates in R&D projects where the potential of pigments from microalgae and cyanobacteria is investigated for textile applications.


BEA cultures macro- and microalgae that can be used for human consumption.
