The start-up

Solaga has developed and patented an unique technology that enables the use of microalgal facades to covert atmospheric carbon-dioxide into burnable biogas

The need

With rapidly growing cities and increased living standards, consumption of resources are peaking in urban areas where production of such resources is not taking place. Also, green-house as emissions, such as CO2, are becoming an urgent problem.

The solution

Solaga develops and commercialises microalgal products and production processes. Access to the wide application set of nature has instigated projects ranging from architecture, decentralised energy production, decarbonisation to marketing novel foods. A key innovation is a patented technology for turning CO2 into burnable methane using immobilised microalgae.

The value proposition

The following features provide the highest value for the users:

  • Air pollution monitoring
  • Carbon-dioxide removal from ambient air
  • Green beautiful facades
  • On-site energy production
  • Reducing urban pollution by improving the micro-climate
