Step 1: Algae is grown using sunlight, water and carbon dioxide Step 2: The crude pigment is purified using proprietary technology Step 3: The pigment is then milled and formed into a dispersion similar to carbon black. Step 4: The dispersion can be used to create a wide variety of products. Algae-based pigment benefits:
Negative carbon footprint
Bio-based
UV light resistant
Safe/non-toxic That’s NSF-funded research. Advancing knowledge. Transforming our future.
