We are developing an industrial platform for the capture of CO2 by microalgal photosynthesis: we valorize the CO2 into natural raw materials on a large scale
CarbonWorks enables industry to convert its CO2 emissions into efficient and safe raw materials on a large scale
Although its innovations are independent of microalgae strains, CarbonWorks prioritizes its developments for the AgTech, Food and Feed markets.
CarbonWorks is developing partnerships with players in these markets to provide them with the algal biomass and natural molecules they need.
CarbonWorks contributes to solving 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
