We farm our seaweed in nutrient-rich waters off the Southwest coast. The result is high-quality products that meet EU food and bio-feed standards. We focus on farming a range of local seaweeds, each with different qualities and applications. Whole seaweed available (fresh and dried).
Through R&D, we have capabilities to produce high-value extracts from our seaweeds tackling our zero waste goals. Our seaweeds are profiled independently and we provide technical sheets to inform our customers. Extracts include:
Maintaining the quality of our products is essential. The result - innovative facilities, with processing steps that safeguard the valuable components found within the seaweed and extracts. This makes them suitable for a range of applications.
Containing pressed fibres for paper, packaging and a protein isolate.
Gelling, thickening, and stabilising properties: texturizing and viscosity of food, cosmetics and personal care products.
Derived from alginic acid. Used in medical field for wound dressings, pharmaceutical formulations and in biotechnology applications.
Derived from alginic acid. Used to improve paper properties and remove heavy metals and contaminants from water.
Seaweed can produce nutrient-rich biofeed and supplements for cattle, horses and pets. And a natural, potent fertiliser for crops as a replacement for chemical fertiliser.
Seaweed is a natural source of B-12, preservative, stabiliser, and source of protein, with some species containing iodine and other valuable products used in health supplements.
Seaweed is used in a range of cosmetic products as an ingredient or emulsifier and has a wide range of pharmaceutical and therapeutic applications.
Seaweed is contributing to a revolution – providing the building blocks for a range of biomaterials and textiles that can provide alternatives to plastics, paper and cardboard.
At Biome Algae, we are actively working toward United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.
