During the Tuesday 28th April afternoon, prior to the conference, a limited number of attendees will receive the unique opportunity to visit the Algalif plant.

Algalíf Iceland is a commercial producer of natural products derived from microalgae. The company was founded in 2012, but began formal operations in Iceland in October 2013. The company is dedicated to solving the nutritional needs of current and future generations and currently produces high-quality astaxanthin, through cultivation of the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. Astalíf™ astaxanthin was the first step in creating microalgae-derived products using an in-house designed tubular photobioreactor (PBR) cultivation system, powered by a proprietary LED lighting system. By using this production method, Algalíf has set new industry benchmarks for astaxanthin production and surpassed industry-accepted maxima of astaxanthin content in algae biomass, as well as the overall process productivity. Algalíf has strong ties to the pristine Icelandic nature and Algalíf´s products benefit from the unique environment in which they are produced. Iceland is one of the most sustainable countries in the world and the Icelandic water is extremely pure, low in minerals and unchlorinated. This is particularly important when using algae for high-value target production, due to the high biosorption capacity of algae. The country generates 100% of its electricity from clean energy, using only 35% of its estimated potential. Algalíf´s harvesting process is very eco-friendly; our production methods allow for close to 0% water evaporation and eliminates the need to cool, heat, or move water during our production process, allowing us to conserve water.

There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis. Please register your attendance for the site visit when booking for the conference.
