Vertical farming of high value microalgae
This video gives an impression of our proprietary technology for the vertical farming of marine microalgae for use in cosmetics and nutraceutical applications, and as larval feeds in aquaculture (https://algae.proviron.com).
Microalgae are notorious for the many different compounds they can produce. They contain high levels of poly-unsaturated fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (omega-3), and potent antioxidants such as fucoxanthin and astaxanthin. At the same time they are an abundant source of carbohydrates, proteins rich in essential amino acids, vitamins and trace elements. Often, they also possess antibacterial, antiviral and/or immune-stimulatory activity.
