Vaxa has developed a disruptive new technology platform perfecting the cultivation of Omega-3 rich micro-algae. Bringing a new scientific approach, our technology, as compared to the current state of the art, requires less than 1% of the fresh water, less than 1% of the land footprint and is carbon negative. We are constantly improving the growth and performance of each strain using machine learning and data analytics techniques.

Partner in the following EIT Food projects
CovidX aspires to investigate whether a food supplement based on a novel Spirulina-extract can strengthen the immune system and help reduce infection risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection. The supplement will not be a replacement for SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations.
Development of highly sustainable less/zero competing-food aquafeeds for European aquaculture using low carbon and zero waste ingredients
Increasing the sustainability of European aquaculture
E2F will develop a sustainable source of protein & lipid from omega-3 rich microalgae cultivated using clean power sources (Geothermal/Hydro) & natural CO₂.
