Growing for millions of years, algae have always played a significant role in the development of the Earth’s environment and ecosystems.
With tens of thousands of identified species and strains, algae are an extremely versatile group of organisms, ranging in lenght from several micrometers to 50 meters. They grow in all parts of the globe under different environmental conditions. They come in all shapes, colors and forms, and contain a wide range of biological components which are being explored for their benefits to mankind.
Despite the great diversity, only a limited number of species and strains are currently in commercial use, in particular for human and animal nutrition applications. Algae have also been successfully deployed in the fields of pharmaceutics, cosmetics, energy production and environmental remediation.
Although still in an early stage of development, it is clear that the algae industry will become a key driver for answering humanity’s future challenges brought up by population growth and depletion of natural resources.
Join us now in exploring this potential and become part of the future.
