Marine Biotechnology

Marine Bioprocessing and Bioproducts

Integrated biotechnology processes help us to understand the functional components of raw materials and transform them into higher value products in a cost effective manner, whilst reducing waste and pollution. This is also termed the “Biorefinery” system, a concept that Flinders University has been pioneering in Australia. 

Marine bioprocesses have the following applications:

  • Analysing materials for functional components
  • Turning biomass and food waste into high value products cost effectively
  • Enhancing quality, efficacy of functional components
  • Enhancing food safety and removing contaminants
  • Novel bioactive compound discovery
  • Analysing the outcomes of bioremediation
