In Aqualgae we are a multidisciplinary team with knowledge in different fields such as biology, biotechnology and engineering. We aim to achieve the optimization and sustainability of microalgae culture systems.
We also know that we have an important responsibility to our clients, as microalgae culture is part of their production processes. That’s why our commitment is total.
Microalgae form the base of the food chain in aquaculture. They are a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), proteins, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.
Microalgae have been used as food or as nutritional supplement for centuries by the human being. They are rich in beneficial substances for our health and have great potential for preventing many diseases.
As food or a source of natural pigments, microalgae are used in feeds for fish, birds, cattle industry and pets.
Mitigation of CO2
The photosynthetic capacity of microalgae is 3 to 5 times superior to terrestrial plants. Microalgae are responsible for the absorption of at least 60% of all global emissions of CO2. For each Kg of microalgae biomass generated, 1,85 Kg of CO2 are absorbed. In Aqualgae we develop projects with industries with high CO2 emissions to offset their environmental impact and contribute to the liberation of O2.
The fact that microalgae can absorb inorganic and organic compounds dissolved in water opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to wastewater treatment. Nitrogen compounds, phosphates, heavy metals and others can be metabolized by microalgae.
Some of the most valuable natural components for the cosmetic-pharmatheutical sector come from microalgae. And there are many others to be discovered.
We design and manufacture high performance photobioreactors for lab or industrial applications. Systems integration, supervision and control of microalgae production plants, other biotechnology processes and aquaculture.
