AlgaeCytes Ltd, based at Discovery Park, Sandwich, Kent, has developed a production technology to deliver commercial quantities of Omega 3 oils derived from a proprietary strain of freshwater algae.

The Company established its first 10,000 litre production plant in late 2017 which marked the beginning of the Company’s next phase, the commercialisation of Omega 3 production, enabling the Company to upscale production and target a number of key markets such as nutritional therapeutics, skin care, and other consumer applications.

The Company employs a photobioreactor system and freshwater algal strains to produce high purity Omega 3 oils EPA.  High quality protein and carbohydrates are also produced from the remaining algal biomass.
