Since 1998, Algatech has been striving to unlock the potential of microalgae. Algatech is among the few companies in the world to have cracked the code for producing commercial-scale natural microalgae at the very highest standard, using our state of the art proprietary technology. Our Planet is based in Kibbutz Ketura, located in the Arava desert, Israel. As sustainability is a core value of ours, we managed to harness the Arava desert’s unique climate conditions to the cultivation of microalgae using a patented, closed system, turning our plant to one of the world’s largest photobioreactor facilities.
