We Lead the Talent

New competences have been drawn to our company!

In a collaboration with LEAD THE TALENT three profiles have been head-hunted to Pure Algae Denmark. They will be working with business development and branding.

It is a strong and diverse team with competences within different fields of topics relevant for our future development, and we are very excited about what the project will bring.

Are you looking for new challenges?

We offer internships at both practical and strategic levels, we on board both scientist (biologists, chemists, engineers etc.) and communications assistants.

So are you in the search of getting more experience within the field of life sciences?

Reach out and let me know or spread our message by sharing or liking.

A life science startup, do you know what I mean?

So what is it actually we do in Pure Algae Denmark…

We grow seaweed.
On land.
Okay, and what’s new?

We design, build and operate a new technology, which we will proof can increase the productivity, reduce the costs and most of all – increase the quality of the seaweed and its sustainable footprint.

Now, what does it take?
Idea to full scale?
Easy now.

If you do something new, you have to start small. When implementing a new technology, we need to test a lot, but we do it systematically. Here is how:

Pilot (lab-scale) -> Prototype (small-scale) -> Demo (large-scale) -> Replicate Demo (full-scale)

We create hypotheses.
We create pilots, and we do rapid testing.
We implement our knowledge and test in prototypes.
If our hypotheses are confirmed all through the value chain, then we are successful.
Until then, it is about keeping on trying.
And of course – about having sufficient funds to keep the process (and ourselves) alive.

Throughout the last year we have been forth and back in this process of designing, testing and iterating on pilots and prototypes. Today we have a Demo, and we are closer now than ever.

We are so close, that we can almost taste the seaweed. Be ready for it, soon you can taste it too.

All we want for Christmas, is seaweed

Dulse is on it’s way heading straight to our Christmas hearts.

Soon it has been a year with designing, building, testing and iterating on our new energy optimized technology for increasing the seaweed production at a reduced space.

And the greatest gifts this Christmas have been the rewards from both Alexander Foss Industrial Fund by DI – International and now also the local support of NRGi who recently contributed to the development of our commercial plant.

Our plant is over floated with seaweed and with the new funds we can increase our production and start addressing the first of our high end seaweed to the local restaurants.

Come spring our first production will be ready and hopefully certified and we have already been placed on the map for seaweed providers in Denmark, check us and the amazing seaweed co-players out at: Linkedin

For now we want to share with you a Christmas heart and feel free to share with us yours in a like or a comment – you might even wish for seaweed, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Merry Christmas to all, Pure Algae Denmark

Blue Bio Value

If you do not speak Portuguese then jump right into 2.01 where an English speaking seaweed specialist comments on the importance and the high potential of growing seaweed. And if you DO speak Portuguese then please enjoy an informative video about global seaweed production 🙂

Legat fra Alexander Foss’ Industrifond

Tak DI – Dansk Industri for jeres opbakning, vi glæder os til at vise jer resultatet!

We are close now, Esben

That was the message I received, when returning from Portugal after 6 weeks. In that time the development of Pure Algae has been in the hands of the independent and professional work of Sandra Lambert Walby and Minh L. Lu.

We are now approaching our target and moving forward by on boarding Tine Zøfting, which gets us closer to getting to market!

What can I say? These people can bring change to the world! I am happy, that Pure Algae Denmark is a part of this change.

Good job, guys – I am proud of you!

Controlled (and automated?) seaweed production

We grow seaweed. On land.
We design, build and operate unique cultivation systems that enable an increased seaweed production at a reduced space through an energy optimized technology.

Watch the video for an explanation of our early prototype and our vision with our technology (only in Danish).

In the future, we are looking to implement digital tools to automate our processes and thereby also increase the quality of the seaweed we produce.

Do you understand how to address automation processes? Are you ready to deal with technology and sensors in a saltwater environment?

Feel free to reach out and let us have a chat about how we together can make a local seaweed production a global option.

We are dedicating our first seaweed production to local Danish restaurants

If you work in a restaurant in Aarhus, then soon you might hear from Tine Zøfting.

For the next two months Tine will lead an interview program to achieve an in depths understanding of Danish restaurants need for seaweed and how our production at Pure Algae Denmark best meets their requirements.

Do you own or work in a restaurant in Aarhus? And do you have an interest in using seaweed? And do you also want to have an influence on how a local seaweed production can benefit the world?

Let us know your interest!
Reach out and Tine will give you a call or a visit.

Bliv supersanker!

For nogle dage siden stod Pure Algae Denmark i samarbejde med CoastZone A/S for en workshop, der skulle ruste et kvart tusinde mennesker til at blive super tang-sankere! 🌱🌍

Igennem stafetter og gåder skulle gæsterne navigere sig igennem det store tangrige og opnå faglig viden igennem en kropslig indlæring. 🤗

Vi mennesker husker bedst igennem aha-oplevelser, grin og gode oplevelser – så vi havde skruet programmet ind på at dyrke netop dette! 😊

Og for at der kunne komme smag på ordene, fik de alle muligheden for at oplevele Heine Max Olesens Seaman Chips. Et lille stemningsbillede fanget af Mette Baunsø Kring er lagt op, og på vegne af teamet ville vi gerne invitere alle, som mangler et fagligt, underholdende og lærerigt indslag til en begivenhed eller firmafest til at kontakte mig, Esben Christiansen, diretke på info@purealgae.dk.
