Microalgae biotechnology serving nature
- The microorganisms we use in our algofarms conduct a vital natural phenomenon called photosynthesis.
- Our urban « forests » in glass tubes fit in urban architecture and help microalgae capture CO2 then produce O2.
- Our job is to provide our clients adapted and all-inclusive solutions to our clients wishing to install urban algofarms.

Installation of an urban algofarm
A 100 m³ URBAN ALGAE algofarm can capture as much carbone dioxyde as 375 eucalyptus*, which represent 20 tons of CO2 captured each year!
*Average eucalyptus dimensions : height 8 meters, diameter 40 cm.
Our technic expertise as a solution to environmental issues
Marine free living algae account for almost 50% of the world carbon biogenic ﬁxation (CO2), even though accounting for less than 1% of the photosynthetic biomass on Earth (Falkowski 2012)
It is for this extraordinary potential that we have chosen to use these microorganisms, several billion years-od. We are proud to be able to deliver a real innovation with regards to get cities greener.
MICROALGAE AND INNOVATION
Climate change, food insecurities, natural resources shortages, mismanagement of water supplies, animal overexploitation… so many reasons to dig new ways: microalgae production!
TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Urban algofarms installed by URBAN ALGAE are production systems called photobioreactors (PBRs). Our equipment are tailor-made, robust, proven to work in hundred locations across the world, and are best on the market in terms of technologic innovation.
MICROALGAE ON DEMAND
We are able to supply biomass produced in our algofarms (Arthrospira, Chlorella, Haematococcus…) to businesses and industries for their raw material procurement. URBAN ALGAE also distributes consumables essential to algoculture, aimed àat aquaculture professionals and specialised universities.
