Planctonid, best Start-up Europe Awards 2019 COP25 in the “Water” category

Planctonid, a biotechnology company, is changing the game !

Phytoremediation and the fight against global warming

Our bio-processes allow tertiary decontamination, nitrogen and phosphorus reduction, massive CO2 capture and ecosystem preservation

Marine Biology and Innovation

Choice of species and strains according to the quality of the water to be treated and the objectives of valorization of the microalgal biomass

Industrial scale production of microalgal farms

Planctonid technology improves large-scale microalgal biomass productivity with some of the highest ratios in the industry

Artificial Intelligence & Automation

Artificial Intelligence and the systematic use of production data to optimize the automation of our processes and production units

Blue bio-economy

New business models based on a circular and sustainable economy. The creation of new local and qualified jobs

The oceans hold enormous potential to meet global goals for healthier food, organic fertilizers, renewable energy and green transportation for a growing world population. Through its technology, Planctonid is committed to this adventure by developing phytoremediation units, which are phytoplankton and microalgae farms. For example, one hectare of our photobioreactors captures as much CO2 as approximately 150 hectares of forest.

Disruptive technologies

Thanks to innovative bioengineering processes, a proprietary technology, a library of productive and robust microalgae strains, seawater or freshwater, and a scientific team with more than 30 years of experience in the cultivation of microalgae on an industrial scale, Planktonid produces a high quality microalgae biomass.

Taking care of the oceans

At the heart of the Blue Economy and the circular economy, Planctonid specializes in the purification of tertiary or domestic water via the cultivation of microalgae and the valorization of microalgal biomass.

Planctonid thus fights against the eutrophication of the seas and against climate change by capturing a lot of CO2.

Various applications

Depending on the type of microalgae cultivated, the dry biomass is rich in proteins, carbohydrates and high-density lipoproteins, the microalgal biomass finds outlets in the fields of human and animal nutrition, natural fertilizers and biostimulants, substitutes for plastics, cosmetics, neutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, biofuels …
