With the currently 21 employees, and its patented technology of vertically flowing PBRs (i.e. hanging gardens) ecoduna produces biomass of various algae species of high quality. Based in Austria, ecoduna is growing algae strains all year round in the demonstration plant with the goal to produce biomass for omega3 algae oil extraction. In 2017 the technology is taken to industrial scale with the construction of a 1ha production facility.
