The Lgem Algae Hub

For us, cultivating algae is not a new thing. We’ve been in the algae cultivating industry for over 12 years and started working with Synalgae since 2019, making us real experts in the field. Since 2009 we offer our hands-on experience to others. Make use of our experience and see how easy algae cultivation can be for you. At Lgem, investment risk reduction is a crucial success factor for entrepreneurs in a healthy Algaeindustry. Therefore, Lgem created the ALGAE-HUB facility. This facility offers customers the possibility to validate their business case on a commercially relevant scale before making significant investments.

The world is ready for new sustainable initiatives, and we can tap into that. That’s why we offer our affordable, low energy, easy-to-use and reliable systems to cultivate algae. For anyone, at any scale, anywhere in the world.

With over 15 years of hands-on experience with Nannochloropsis Gaditana, and many other species, Lgem’s technology offers a solid basis of knowledge and development.

Lgem’s proprietary PBR technology was developed, improved and validated within Lgem’s own commercial algae production. Lgem is proud of the significant improvements that Wavywind™ and Bubblebrush™ technology bring to the algae cultivation process. These improvements put Lgem’s patented PBR systems on the next level compared to any other PBRs currently available in the market.
