About Algae Capital

Algae Capital specializes in the large-scale and sustainable cultivation of microalgae to produce plant-based omega-3 rich oil and proteins. For over a decade, we have conducted extensive research into microalgae cultivation at our testing facility in Iceland. After this test phase, Algae Capital is now ready for the next step: the realization of a 2-hectare production facility in Iceland. Once this production facility is operational, Algae Capital will further roll out this 'concept' in Iceland and other countries.

Our organizational structure exists of multiple entities: from researching microalgae to managing everything about the production facility, and from growing microalgae to sales and marketing of our microalgae products. Algae Capital serves as connector, coordinating the overall activities of these entities.
