Product/Service Summary

AlgaNext has designed a cloud monitoring based high yielding portable Algae-farm to fill the supply-demand gap in Algae Industry worldwide. Currently, in our prototype development stage, we are minimising our land resource requirements by using vacant rooftops and spaces in urban settlements. The yields stand high against contamination due to closed loop process of our greenhouse apparatus.
For our pilot run, we'll be targeting health concept cafe, restaurants, and fitness studios, etc. as potential Spirulina customers. Subsequently, will move to cater the algae needs in general of big pharmaceutical and nutraceutical companies.
