Algae Microfarms

Microfarms may be the future of greenhouses, hydroponics and urban farming. Now in a small area, fast-growing microalgae, like the superfood spirulina, produce higher income for growers than conventional veges and herbs.

Business Opportunity

Successful small-scale algae cultivation is now practical. With web-based remote sensors and controls developed by Smart Microfarms, remote experts can guide local operators, without the cost of onsite algae scientists.

Scalable Systems

Combined with scalable, modular growing systems, smart algae microfarms can be installed anywhere. Now growers and investors, with algae microfarms, can transform our food culture, sustainably and profitably.
