Microphyt develops a range of microalgae-based products
Since 2009, Microphyt has been developing technology to overcome a common problem with culturing microalgae, specifically that many species of microalgae are too delicate for the mechanical stress of industrial production, limiting the types of microalgae and molecules one can produce.
It is based on 5,000-litre tubular photobioreactors, which offer both high differentiation potential (access to a new diversity of species) and the ability to supply natural active ingredients in an industrial and standardised way.
The company is planning to commercialise its range of microalgae-based nutritional and cosmetic products.
Microphyt’s CAMARGUE technology utilizes 5,000 litre tubular photobioreactors to provide high differentiation potential (access to a new diversity of species) together with the ability to produce natural active ingredients on an industrial and standardized scale (a mode of production both continuous and controlled). It enables them to cultivate microalgae in an environmentally responsible manner by adjusting nutrient intake to physiological needs.
