Alginor seeks towards a green and sustainable future based on treasures from the sea. We focus on total utilisation of seaweeds for production of unique, pure and formula-specific products. Through green, environmentally friendly and resource efficient operations Alginor sets the standard for tomorrow’s innovative solutions.
Alginor ASA was established 24 March 2014 in Haugesund, Norway to develop a technology for total utilisation of seaweeds to be integrated in a multifunctional biorefinery for seaweeds.
Seaweeds are among the world’s largest untapped resources. We are focusing on the large brown kelp Laminaria hyperborea and along the Norwegian coast alone there is a rough estimate of 60 million tonnes of standing biomass. To secure a sustainable and efficient utilisation of this important stock it is necessary to exploit the entire biomass.
We plan to establish the first biorefinery in Norway that focuses on total utilisation of seaweeds and extracting pure and formula-specific products for application areas such as food, feed, pharma, agri, chemicals and materials.
