Nordic Algae was established by students from the Danish Technical University (DTU).

The company was founded on the conviction that there are unexploited opportunities in the seaweed industry, as well as a need to develop ocean resource to solve global environmental issues.

The team came together, due to their shared belief that actions have to be taken to save the planet. Working in the seaweed industry and founding Nordic Algae was the way to bring our own contribution to a more sustainable world.
