At ABO we are continually surprised by the versatility of algae cultivation and the potential for algae-based products to meet so many of the challenges the world faces when it comes to food and nutrition.
As global pressures continue to strain our land and water resources, dozens of companies and technology researchers are developing new ways for algae–the world’s most productive crop–to meet rising demand for protein and vital nutrients.
