Aqualgae is the end result of a group of people with different knowledge and experiences, united with a common goal: to innovate microalgae production systems and the aquaculture industry. We incorporate cutting-edge technology and methodologies from the industrial sector to the world of microalgae and aquaculture, for the optimization of more sustainable production processes.
Aquaculture is now viewed as an alternative to the over exploitation of marine resources, already surpassing fishing activity worldwide.
Microalgae are rich in beneficial substances to human health with great potential to prevent numerous diseases. They are currently used in the form of dry biomass or for the extraction of supplements and natural food colors.
Different products based on microalgae are commercially available for use in agriculture as innovative and potential products to improve crop production.
MITIGATION OF CO2
The photosynthetic capacity of microalgae is 3 to 5 times higher than that of terrestrial plants. Microalgae are responsible for the absorption of at least 60% of all global CO2 emissions.
Microalgae have mechanisms to absorb inorganic and organic compounds dissolved in water as nutrients for their metabolism. Nitrogen compounds, phosphates, heavy metals and others can be metabolized or sequestered by microalgae and removed from the water.
Source of natural pigments, antioxidants and vitamins, various species of microalgae are being used to treat various skin-related problems.
R & D
We work with recognized institutions from the sector to develop new lines of product that enable us to be at the forefront.
