Biomass produced by bioremediation, consisting of bivalve molluscs, annelids polychaetes, porifera (sponges) and macroalgae represents a by product that can find applications in several fields.
The exploitation of the biomass of bivalve molluscs does not need any introduction, they are edible organisms and they have been exploited for centuries.
All the other proposed organisms do not constitute an edible biomass, but can constitute row material for the extraction of active ingredients in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and cosmetics, particularly in relation to porifera and macroalgae.
Macroalgae can also be turned into fertilizer to be used in horticulture.
The worms polychaetes can instead have an exploitation as bait for sport fishing and as ornamental animals in the aquarium.
The biomass of polychaetes and algae can also be used as a component in the production of fooder. That for the moment is proposed only to the use in the same plant, but, depending from the amount of biomass that can be produced also allow this innovative product can be included in the feed market.
