Microalgae What are they?
They are aquatic organisms that can be found in almost all habitats on our planet. They have photosynthetic capacity, meaning they use solar energy to generate organic compounds (carbohydrates, proteins, fats), fixing CO2 and liberating O
50,000 species are presently known approximately, but it is estimated that there are more than 700,000 in existence
They produce unique elements like proteins, polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, carotenoids, enzymes.
Their applications are multiple and there are some that are yet to be discovered.
