Secretary:
UNE - ASOCIACIÓN ESPAÑOLA DE NORMALIZACIÓN
Field of Activity:
Standardization of:

Specification, classification, terminology and determination methods for algae (general) and algae-based products immediately derived from or used in algae production processes. In addition, guidance on the specific application of algae products as feedstock or intermediates for energy and non-energy products may be developed. Where specific standards for properties (quality or determination) of such feedstock for a certain industry exist, these will be referenced and considered as beyond the scope of the committee.

For the purpose of this committee, algae and algae-based products (and their intermediates) are defined as algal biomass, algae extracts or purified compounds from algae, including photoautotrophic, autotrophic, mixotrophic and heterotrophic algae, produced in open cultivation systems, as for example raceway ponds, lagoons and natural environment, and produced in closed systems, as for example photobioreactors, fermenters and other systems.

Exceptions:

Where specific standards for properties (quality or determination) of such feedstock for a certain industry exist, these will be referenced and considered as beyond the scope of the committee.
