Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms using light and inorganic carbon (CO2) as a source of energy to produce biomass. These tiny organisms can be found in numerous different natural habitats: sea or fresh water, soil, trees and buildings surface, hot springs, glaciers, etc. They are an incredibly innovative answer for a growing need in sustainable vegetal sourcing to replace chemicals and petrol-based products found in consumer goods, food, feed and cosmetics.
In addition to the usual proteins, sugars and fats, AlgoSource has found original molecules such as pigments, polyunsaturated fatty acids of ω3 and ω6 classes, antioxydants, exopolysaccharides, etc.
We apply a selective recovery inside each cell compartment, a method which can be defined as a controlled microalgae biorefinery.
