BLUE BIOTECHONOLOGY

 

We produce high quality microalgae for diverse end-users (B2B and also for individual customers). Examples:

  • Chlorella sp. (Chlorophyceae) in powder, to be used as food supplement, known for its anti-oxidant properties and its high content in proteins, fibers and lipids (vitamins) and minerals.

  • Spirullina sp. powder (Cyanobacteria) to be used as food supplement and as additive in animal feed (e.g. aquaculture, chicken farms, dog and cat petfood) for its very high content in proteins, vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), and B3 (niacine), and also for its content in copper and iron and traces of manganese, magnesium and potassium.

  • Spirogyra sp. (Zzygnematales) for its multiple applications, from bioremediation and biofuel production, through to its use as food source, as it is an edible freshwater macroalga rich in proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, dietary fibers, multivitamins, and mineral substances. We are also exploring other innovative applications of this silky green algae, commonly known as 'water silk'. 

  • Haematococcus pluvialis rich in astaxanthin, acts as a powerful anti-oxidant, used particularly in aquaculture and cosmetics.

ALGAE PRODUCTION 

 

Some of the products we have started to develop:

  • Handicrafted algae-based healthcare products (soaps,  bubble baths, shampoos, etc.)

  • Innovative algae-based textiles

  • Algae-based pigments/dyes for textiles, arts and handicraft.

  • Handcrafted algae-based postcards

  • Educational booklets and activity books  for kids and young people, focusing on algae, aquatic ecosystems and marine biotechnology.

  • Recipe books with suggestions on how to include algae in your daily menus
