Varicon Aqua is the manufacturer of the Phyco range of photobioreactors and the Cell-Hi line of algal nutrients. We are based in the UK and our team has more than 30 years’ experience designing, constructing and deploying algae photobioreactors and aquaculture production systems worldwide. We design, supply, install and commission both laboratory and industrial scale platforms for the cultivation of algae to a broad range of commercial and academic partners. To this end we employ a dedicated team of technicians, researchers, engineers and algal biologists who understand algal bioprocesses; from wastewater treatment to bulk and high value production. This unique experience gives us a competitive advantage when working with clients, allowing us to provide bespoke photobioreactor systems for a wide range of applications.
