Dear all

This Friday we will receive a talk from Dr. Ingólfur Gunnarson, Head of Cultuvation at Algalíf, with the title: Algalíf – World‘s largest astaxanthin producer.

Where? Room 155, VRII building and broadcasted via zoom:

When? 17th of September 11:40-12:20 (please note we needed the starting time from 11:30 to 11:40 from now on).


Algalíf is a fast-growing biotech-company based in Reykjanesbaer, Iceland. Algalíf is a leading manufacturer and supplier of high-grade natural astaxanthin from microalgae (Haematococcus pluvialis), cultivated in environmentally friendly, state-of-the-art photobioreactors. Astaxanthin is nature’s most potent antioxidant and is notoriously difficult to produce due to susceptibility of H. pluvialis cultures to contamination by other microorganisms. Our unique, enclosed photobioreactor cultivation systems, three-phase cultivation process and our highly optimized lighting solutions help ensure maximum microalgae growth, with market leading astaxanthin productivity and yields. Algalíf is set to become the world’s largest astaxanthin producer by year 2023 when brand new production facilities will become operational.

Best wishes,
