Microalgae contain many important nutrients, including high protein content, unsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Microalgae can be cultivated on most areas in the sea or on land. There is no need to use land that could otherwise have been used in agriculture. By cultivating microalgae indoors during winter, a year-round microalgae production is also feasible.
At NIBIO, we work with various ways of utilizing microalgae, e.g., for feed and food, and for other commercial purposes such as pharmacy and other high-value products.
