Daniel Figueiredo

R&D of Microalgae Technology at Green CoLab, Portugal

Daniel Figueiredo has already been making his way in the microalgae field for five years, starting with his MSc in Biotechnology from the University of Lisbon and thesis at Wageningen University. He has gained knowledge of industrial operation at Buggypower (Madeira, Portugal) and is currently working at GreenColab (Faro, Portugal), focusing on microalgae harvesting and wastewater treatment. He has been studying electrocoagulation, a harvesting technology that can reduce microalgae operation costs while adding minerals to biomass suitable for agricultural or feed applications. His other interests are process optimization, disruption technologies, and waste valorization through algal biotechnology.
