Aquaculture For Good

Energaia

EnerGaia specializes in producing fresh and sustainable algae products. Focused on making Spirulina a part of daily diets and utilizing otherwise unusable space and land to cultivate healthy food, the Energaia team is leading the way towards tackling nutritional and environmental problems that plague the cities and residents of the world.

EnerGaia has developed a proprietary algae production system that balances the costs of system installation, maintenance, and operation with algal growth rate making them one of the most efficient producers of Spirulina on the planet.

Traditionally, production of Spirulina on a commercial scale has occurred in large, shallow, open-air ponds. This method of production has advanced little from historical methods of cultivation used on the shore of Lake Chad. There, the Kanembu population harvest naturally growing Spirulina from the lake and dry it for later consumption. While this method does have its benefits EnerGaia has redesigned how Spirulina is produced. By developing a proprietary algae production bioreactor design, they have created a system that maximizes production with minimal resources, reduces potential for contamination, and allows to produce Spirulina virtually anywhere.
