Algaecytes’ approach to cultivating algae ensures the highest quality product while upholding our commitment to sustainable practices. Our enclosed, controlled environment and patented production process contribute to a healthier future by harmonizing nature and technology, aligning with our mission to make a positive impact on both wellness and the environment.
At the center of AlgaeCytes’ cultivation process is our advanced photobioreactor system. Algae are grown in rows of enclosed glass tubing, and LED lighting is used to stimulate photosynthesis. Our patented process optimizes the photosynthetic process, allowing microalgae to flourish and produce valuable compounds. our system enables us to regulate light, nutrient supply, and temperature for efficient and consistent production year-round. Our algae grow 24/7, regardless of outside weather conditions.
AlgaeCytes was established in 2010 with the goal of innovating high-quality ingredients from microorganisms, sustainably and at scale. Our headquarters is located at Discovery Park in Sandwich, Kent, UK, one of the leading science and technology parks in the UK. This strategic location provides our R&D team with access to a vibrant community of researchers and innovators, as well as state-of-the-art facilities. Our R&D team has spent several years operating a pilot facility, optimizing the production of our lead product. We are now well-positioned for commercial expansion and are excited to bring our products to market.
Dessau, Germany was chosen as the location for our first commercial-scale plant. The region of Saxony-Anhalt is a leading region for biotechnology in Germany, with a strong commitment to sustainability and innovation. It is also home to a number of world-renowned research institutions, including the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences and its Competence Center Algal Biotechnology. The plant will be located in an ideal environment for sustainable, energy-efficient operations, with renewable energy via rooftop and other solar, water recycling, and other features.
From our Research & Development headquarters in England to our commercial operations in Germany, our team is dedicated to pioneering sustainable solutions using our microalgae platform. We’ve spent years researching and developing a collection of patented strains, each with their own unique benefits and characteristics. And we’re not stopping there.
Algaceytes is committed to continuous innovation in the field of microalgae cultivation and production. In addition to our own research and development, we are proud to collaborate with leading organizations and universities. The exchange of knowledge and expertise further accelerates the development of new algae-based products and applications. We believe that algae are a key to a more sustainable future, and we are dedicated to developing the most advanced algae cultivation technologies available.
