Sargassum muticum is an invasive brown seaweed which could not be eradicated from the Atlantic coasts. Therefore, periodic collection and valorization of its components has been suggested. Efficient multistage and multiproduct processes for the obtaining of valuable fractions from this seaweed, which also could be applicable to other brown seaweeds, were developed. This review discusses the potential of conventional and emerging technologies for the sequential extraction of S. muticum bioactives of interest for food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical applications.
