What is Seagrass?

Algal biomass is widely regarded as the most reliable source for addressing many well-known issues such as starvation, carbon emissions, and fossil fuel depletion. It is quickly gaining traction as one of the most potential long-term biomass and oil sources. Seagrass’ main goal is to increase the production and availability of the most important algal biomass to combat malnutrition and create a sustainable environment.

Seagrass Technologies Private Ltd has identified the potential of establishing an industry focused on eliminating barriers to nutrition within the country’s food supply, as well as raising awareness of the product’s enormous nutritional benefits and the importance of the algal biomass venture market in India and abroad.

Their unique creations

Seagrass has created a patent-pending system for cultivating three major marine algae, particularly the Dunaliella salina (DS) microalgae, a challenging marine species that produces a high concentration of β-carotene for antioxidant and nutritional food additives. The plant hastens greenhouse gas reduction, which keeps the product’s quality high. Seagrass has devised a technique for harvesting contaminant-free biomass that is automated along with solar technology that is integrated for energy conservation. This marine algae biomass is produced from certified, quality-tested food-grade pond liners.

In Tsunami-affected areas, technology has been optimized to employ non-cultivable land with optimal utilization of renewable algae culture. Under outside conditions, the platform was tailored to grow three of the most valuable Marine Micro Algae species using a patented growth process.

Their current study focuses on LED Stress Studies to improve product yield and quality. Their main technological platform provides cutting-edge cultivating methods that boost crop capacity while lowering production expenses.

This harvesting technology grows marine microalgae using non-potable water, such as seawater, and non-arable land.

Why choose Seagrass?

Seagrass is the FIRST business in India (and Southeast Asia) that uses saltwater to generate the three additional Marine Micro Algae. They’ve developed a proprietary technology for cultivating ALL three major marine algae, particularly the Dunaliella salina (DS) micro-algae.

Applications of the algae

This algal product has found application in a variety of different other products such as antioxidant and nutritional food supplements, pigments and oils for nutraceuticals (Omega 3 EPA/DHA), natural cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, animal feeds, fertilizers, bio-fuels, and bio-plastics.

Their Goal

The company’s goal is to develop technologies to develop high-value-added algae “green” products that are scalable, profitable, and sustainable around the world.

Their commitment

With strong quality control systems and processes, they promise to deliver quality-certified algal biomass. For safety and quality, they promise to offer product grading and certification from industry-leading test labs. They only use approved harvesting and farming procedures that meet international standards. To develop a broader understanding and consumer acceptance, they aim to raise awareness about the benefits of algae and promote the “Green Planet Initiative”.
