Microalgae are our passion. That is why in Aqualgae we develop complete solutions for its production or research, from the simple supply of starter cultures and scale up solutions to photobioreactors and industrial production plants.

We are a multidisciplinary team formed by people with recognized experience and Know-How in different fields of biology and engineering. Thanks to the commitment of each and everyone, we can offer the best solution for each client. We know how to do it well, but we want to do it better.

This is not a simple meaningless slogan; our team assumes the responsibility of giving the highest value to each project, innovating in every detail, and ensuring that our effort has been the maximum one in every moment. We know that our nonconformism mindset is a client’s ally; but is not only that, is our way of doing things.

Our values define the way we face each project. The passion for what we do is what makes us want to innovate and improve day by day. We work with responsibility, leaving things better than what already exists to offer an add value, which involves a high quality in our products and services.

Our company philosophy is not only applied to our projects, but also to people. We work with companies that share the same values as us: respect for the environment and for people.

Aquaculture

Microalgae form the base of the food chain in aquaculture. They are a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), proteins, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.

Human consumption

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.

Animal feeds

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.

Wastewater treatment

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.

Cosmetic-pharmatheutical

Some of the most valuable natural components for the cosmetic-pharmatheutical sector come from microalgae. And there are many others to be discovered.

Engineering

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.
