Across the entire value chain…
AlgoSource is involved at each stage of the microalgae cycle: from selection and production (from a laboratory to an industrial scale), and creating value from algae (algae refining) through to the manufacture of finished goods.
Microalgae cultivation is central to the value creation process.
Bespoke production systems are needed for the photosynthetic development of microalgae. These systems need to be fine-tuned to suit the required application, the industrial operating conditions, the strain requiring cultivation, and so on.
AlgoSource Products has an extensive track record in producing microalgae and cyanobacteria on an industrial scale (especially at its Alpha Biotech production site created in 1993).
Expertise in microalgae cultivation
The Group spearheads continuous research and development into microalgae cultivation through its AlgoSource Technologies branch, whether through its involvement in specific national or international programmes, or in partnership with the GEPEA Laboratory at the University of Nantes (CNRS joint research unit), which over the last 30 or so years has carved itself a reputation as an expert in the bioprocess engineering of microalgae.
The major criteria that influence how the production system is engineered include the target market and application, the operating environment and biological needs, all of which as part of an industrial ecology strategy that factors in the potential effluent types that can be jointly recovered (CO2, heat, nitrates, phosphates, etc.).
Sale of controlled production equipment
We also offer a range of professional controlled production tools (from a few litres to several cubic metres).
