Markets

AgTech, Food/Feed: agriculture faces 3 major challenges

Decreasing agricultural land per capita, increasing protein consumption per capita, increasing population

Growing public and political awareness of food safety and quality, as well as their environmental impact

Agricultural sector held responsible for 20% of greenhouse gas emissions

CarbonWorks enables industry to develop safe and effective bioproducts on a large scale, and users to reduce their carbon footprint

AgTech, Food/Feed

While its innovations are independent of microalgae strains, CarbonWorks prioritizes its developments for the AgTech, Food/Feed markets.

CarbonWorks is developing partnerships with players in these markets to provide them with the algal biomass they need.

About us
