Algae is Bloomin’ Business

Long time ABO member Algix LLC, the world’s leading producer of algae bio-products has partnered with Effekt LLC, an environmentally-minded product and material development company. They’ve joined forces to create the first-ever algae-derived flexible foams! Algix and Effect will begin commercializing the foam in their new joint business, Bloom Holdings.

The foam is produced with Algix’s dried algae biomass (GMO-free) which is solely collected from waste streams across the US and Asia.

The flexible foam is already being sold as BLOOM™. Soon you might see this brand name on footwear, yoga mats, and toys—and who knows where else!
