OUR FARM

Our environment

With a plentiful supply of water and an exceptional number of sunny days in our location, you could not ask for a better environment for growing algae. Our algae is cultivated in shallow, covered, indoor ponds to take advantage of the abundant sunlight and promote fast algae growth.
Our Water
Other than sunlight, water is the most important medium for growing algae and as such something we take very seriously. The water used at our algae farm is naturally rich in salt and C02, which makes it an ideal medium for growing high quality algae. Our water comes from three sources. Our fresh water is sourced from a deep aquifer and rainwater harvesting and our salty, mineral rich, water comes from a second, shallower aquifer. It is a combination of these three sources, combined with food-grade salts and nutrients that create a pristine environment for our algae to flourish.
 
How we grow our Algae
The ideal conditions for growing algae are in wide shallow ponds. This is to maximise the sunlight over the area and to keep the water at optimal temperature to promote accelerated algae growth. Unlike traditional “Open Air” earthen ponds, we have gone our own way and are doing something unique. Our ponds are a concrete base and wall, which is coated with a white epoxy resin. Our ponds are then enclosed in a greenhouse with UV resistant film to enable maximum growth, high quality control and a superior end product. A pure strain of inoculum is maintained in our onsite Photo Bio-reactor (PBR) which ensures a consistent batch quality.
 
Our Focus
There is no doubt that algae is a versatile plant, which lends itself to many different applications. From cosmetics and nutraceuticals through to functional food and beverage the scope is wide. Our initial focus is to produce a high quality Nannochloropsis Oceanica paste that can be utilised in any of these applications.
