Microalgae is a primary producer, at the base in natures food web. About 90 % of the input energy is lost for every step. By consuming the primary producers directly, in food/feed, a lot of energy is being saved.
MicroA is spearheading the green industry of the future by creating a path for industrial microalgae production.
At MicroA, we have a clear understanding that future industry needs to be both environmentally and economically sustainable. We believe that the microalgae production is one of the solutions to create a green sustainable industry. Microalgae production can help society now and in the future by producing important goods in a sustainable way.
MicroA is located just outside the Norwegian oil and gas capital of Stavanger. This gives the potential of turning advanced oil technology and competence into a green wave of innovation.
Amazingly, 98 % of all the energy in Norway comes from renewable sources, mainly hydropower. This ensures that green energy is used in MicroA’s microalgae production processes.
