Bonaire AlgaePARC is a project based on a team between Wageningen University Research, Public Entity Bonaire, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and travel organisation TUI, thanks to a grant received from the European Union via the Association of Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTA).
Professor Rene Wijffels, Wageningen University and Research presented progress of the project. Bonaire has an ideal climate for the production of micro-algae due to the temperature and the amount of sun. Bonaire, with Edison Rijna as Governor, is one of the Overseas Countries and Territories moving in the right direction, especially by his personal involvement and personal drive for building diversified sustainable economy and prosperous society. Particularly it is very valuable that Governor Edison Rijna is taking care of innovation to be developed and in sustainable way to be implemented transversally across all sectors.
