Algalif Iceland has announced its 30 million US$ expansion plan for its sustainable astaxanthin production facilities in Iceland. “This is one of the biggest foreign investment projects in Iceland for a while” says Orri Björnsson, Algalif CEO.
Construction will begin early next year. Production will more than triple, from over 1.500 kg to 5.000 kg of astaxanthin annually. The company will thereby be the biggest astaxanthin producer in the world. Read More
2020 looks to be the best year in the history of Algalif Iceland with stable production and sales of over 1.500 kg of pure astaxanthin. The company has established itself as a market leader in the production of high quality sustainable natural astaxanthin from algae since it was founded in 2012.
Its location in Iceland means that Algalif has access to an abundance of clean natural water and 100% green geothermal energy. The company’s dedication to all-around sustainability means it renowned for exceptionally clean quality astaxanthin.
It is company policy to aim at 360° sustainability and that goal is within reach with all operations being powered with green energy and zero fossil fuel usage within the company.
On top of all that the extensive market knowledge of the management team and competitive cost structure has made Algalif Iceland a market leader and resulted in the best year in the company’s history.
Algalif®, Icelandic producer of pure, high-grade, natural astaxanthin from microalgae, will participate in an informative session at the 13th annual Algae Biomass Summit taking place in Orlando, FL September 16-19.
Algae Biomass Summit is the go-to conference for algae-based product developers and the scientific community looking to further unlock the potential of algae. Tryggvi Stefansson, science manager at Algalif will take part in Biomass Quality: Ensuring Success in Meeting Quality Standards on September 19th from 8:30 to 10:30am.
The session will bring together experts both working on the front lines of producing, marketing and selling biomass and those supporting the commercialization of algae with biomass characterization assessment. It will provide a lively forum offering advice, best practices and case studies for delivering algae-based food and nutritional products that meet even the strictest quality and regulatory guidelines.
“Commercial algae cultivation, as with any type of production-level cell cultivation, is faced with ever-present risks of contamination,” said Stefansson. “In this session we will present potential risks, highlight important contamination control checkpoints and discuss ways to minimize or avoid common risks throughout the production process – from the input of raw ingredients to the handling of finished consumer products.”
