Dr. Pi Nyvall, Olmix Group’s Scientific Director, shares her thoughts on the 9th edition of the International Seaweed Conference, held online this year, with the General Seaweed session chaired by the Group.
As part of the GENIALG project, Olmix Group has been involved in a recent scientific study that sheds light on successful natural processes to extract chlorophylls from Ulva spp. from 2 different European biomasses. The research was developed in collaboration between Olmix, ALGAplus and University of Aveiro and has been published in Separation and Purification Technology Journal.
A throwback to the recent research by Olmix Group and INRAe, which showed that a green algae extract stimulates the production of immune mediators through intestinal epithelial cells. These results indicate that this kind of preparation could be used in livestock feed to improve their resistance to infections and therefore reduce the use of antibiotics.
Olmix Group’s Scientific Director, Dr. Pi Nyvall, chaired the technical webinar hosted by the European Algae Biomass Association, which put the focus on the relevance of seaweed cultivation and the link between science, technology and business
On February 25, 2020, Philippe Mauguin, President and CEO of INRAE (National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment) and Hervé Balusson, CEO of Olmix Group, signed a first framework agreement which aims at strengthening their collaboration in the fields of both environment and animal nutrition and health with the shared objective of developing sustainable and economically viable agricultural food systems.
