ABOUT US

OBJECTIVES

We are a micro SME based in Lisbon, Portugal.

Our team is comprised of post-doctoral / post-graduate individuals with complementary experience in Phycology, Aquaculture, Biotechnology, Bioremediation, Food and animal feed development, and Sustainability.

Our main objectives are:

  • to provide the most relevant and cost-effective microalgae/cyanobacteria for diverse sustainable applications, namely as food and animal feed-additives, functional food and beverages, bioplastics, cosmetics, textiles, and dyes/pigments.

  • to explore and provide innovative and agile cyanobacteria/microalgae bioremediation solutions to industrial, urban, agricultural systems, as well as to help tackle natural algal blooms and other eutrophization agents

  • and,given the fairly recent and quite exponential growth of the algae-based markets, we also aim to actively contribute to pre-and co-normative research (i.e.PNR and CNR) for the further development and sound application of  algae-specific normative measures and standards.
