The production of macroalgae, microalgae and cyanobacteria is constantly evolving. This is due to their composition rich in molecules of interest, minerals, trace elements, proteins, vitamins and antioxidants. VGD systems make it possible to increase the quality, yield and homogeneity of production, whether in outdoor pools, by additional specific light, or indoors by replacing the sun, enriched with light wavelengths beneficial to the environment. good overall, nutritious and qualitative development of crops.

  • Producers
  • Technical centers and research institutes

Spirulina, Chlorella, Astaxanthin, Ulve, Porphyra, …

In recent years, the enthusiasm for the use of algae, in the general sense, has been very important. Particularly in the areas of food, pharmaceuticals, energy, pollution control, biofuels and others.
Whether outdoors or indoors, in a pond or in a photobioreactor, light plays an important fundamental role in the development and composition of algae.
