From the Swedish west coast to the world
Our new facility is divided into a Cultivation part and a Processing part. The Cultivation is fitted into a 2300 square meters greenhouse and consists of shallow raceway ponds stacked onto each other to create over 10 000 square meters of cultivation.
The cultivation modules are designed for optimal growth of the benthic pennate diatoms that produce our special Algica. A self-propelled harvester is a part of the system and continuously harvests the algae biofilm. The algae is then transported to the Processing part of the factory, where 200 square meters of processing equipment extracts the unique material from the algae. The high level of automation makes the factory very efficient and enables very high accuracy and control of both cultivation and processing.
