What's your role within the EnAlgae project?

I am leading action seven on economics and try to coordinate the participation of Wageningen's research group in the EnAlgae project.

 

What were you doing before you joined the project?

That is not easy to answer, but let’s focus on my participation in the development of the bio-economy which comes closest to the goals of EnAlgae. Together with partners, I have developed the Application Centre for Renewable Resources (ACRRES) which is a public-private partnership on solar and wind energy, and also on small scale biorefinery. I have set up and developed the project that has (amongst other things) led to the construction of an anaerobic biogas plant, a bio-ethanol plant, algae ponds and a thermal hydrolysis pre-treatment plant; all of which are interconnected based on waste streams.

 

Why you are interesting in EnAlgae?

Together with our industry partner, we want to accelerate the learning curve for algae. The EnAlgae project supports this ambition.

 

What are you working on at the moment?

At present, together with colleagues, I am working on bio-economic algae production models. We have chosen four excel based models to which we invite stakeholders to give input in order to improve the model results.

 

Tell us something else about yourself:

I have pet birds. They fly in our living room (only two and small; parrots). I also enjoy photography and travelling.
