ABOUT US

Objectives

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.

The STELLARIA bank of algae and cyanobacteria (S-Algae) is comprised of 47 strains, some of which likely to be proven phylogenetically unique.

 

We are now (re)starting to grow all these strains at lab/pilot scale and, all going well, will soon be accepting B2B orders for commercial use or for R&I applications.

We intend to apply for 'organic' certification to also provide B2C algae-enriched functional food and beverages to individual consumers from the general public.

Examples of our products: red stage Haematococcus pluvialis  dry powder, Chlorella vulgaris broken cell wall / powder
