Itämeren levistä tulevaisuuden raaka-aineita

Olemme kotimainen levänjalostusteknologiaan keskittynyt yritys, jonka erikoistuotteet tuovat uusia mahdollisuuksia luonnonpohjaisille tuotteille lukuisilla teollisuudenaloilla.

Vesistössä sinilevä on myrkyllinen ihmiselle ja tuhoaa monen eläin- ja kasvilajin elinympäristöä. Sinilevä ja rakkohauru sisältävät kuitenkin aineosia, joita elintarvike-, kosmetiikka- ja lääketeollisuus voivat hyödyntää raaka-aineina, kuten sakeuttajina. Osana visiotamme on luoda Suomeen Itämeren levään pohjautuva liiketoiminnan ekosysteemi, joka auttaisi Itämeren rehevöitymisongelman ratkaisemisessa kaupallisesti kannattavin keinoin. 

Origin by Ocean hakee parhaillaan rahoitusta levänjalostusteknologian kehitykseen. Suomen ensimmäisen leväbiojalostamon on tarkoitus toimia täydellä tuotantoteholla vuonna 2025.

Framtidens råvaror av Östersjöns alger

Vi är ett finländskt företag specialiserat på algförädlingsteknik. Våra specialprodukter skapar nya möjligheter för naturbaserade produkter inom flera industrier.

Blågröna alger i vattendragen är giftiga för människan och förstör livsmiljön för flera djur- och växtarter. Blågröna alger och blåstång innehåller dock ämnen som kan utnyttjas som råvaror, t.ex. som förtjockningsmedel, inom livsmedels-, kosmetik-, och läkemedelsindustri. Som en del av vår vision vill vi skapa ett affärsekosystem som bygger på Östersjöalger i Finland, och som kan hjälpa lösa Östersjöns övergödningsproblem med kommersiellt hållbara metoder.  

Origin by Ocean söker för närvarande finansiering för att utveckla algförädlingsteknik. Avsikten är att Finlands första algbioraffinaderi ska drivas med full produktionskapacitet år 2025.
