We are Swedish Algae Factory
– a visionary algae lab
Swedish Algae Factory was founded in 2014 around unique traits of certain diatom species, i.e. their outstanding ability to grow well in low temperature and low light conditions.
Swedish Algae Factory operate in harmony with nature, in real time. We cultivate our own algae, based on a circular economic mindset where carbon dioxide, nitrogen and phosphorus emissions are converted into valuable products.
Through a controlled algae bloom we prevent harmful emissions of nitrogen and phosphorus into our seas and oceans. In the process, we also clean water and produce a shell material that can be utilized to for example enhance the efficiency of solar panels, as a UV filter in sunscreens or for uptake and release of chemical substances in a variety of products. The organic biomass can e.g. be used as more sustainably produced feed and fertilizers.
By 2030 our goal is to have one hundred Swedish Algae Factories up and running worldwide, contributing to a more sustainable industry.
