Greensea, the marine subsidiary of Greentech, has recently invested in a new production tool to make liquid and soft extracts.
This new capacity is added to the production of 70,000 litres of microalgae beforehand, and to the tangential filtering and the chromatography allowing the fractionation of extracts and the purification of active biomolecules afterwards.
“It was necessary to invest in our infrastructures after hiring employees in R&D. We have invested nearly half a million Euros and this is the start of an investment plan spanning over three years. We are still leaders in the production of microalgae as well as in the field of metabolic orientation in France with over 28 years of experience, and our goal is to remain in the top few companies in Europe,” said Jean-Paul Cadoret, the director of Greensea.
Greensea, which has been producing microalgae and algae extracts since 1988, is located by the Étang de Thau near the Mediterranean basin and its daily production capacity now reaches nearly 1,000 litres of liquid extracts and 150 kg of soft extracts.
