In the vibrant heart of the Netherlands, a gem of an idea is brightening the world of farming. Lgem, an innovative Dutch algae grower, has harnessed the power of artificial light to cultivate protein-packed algae year-round.
Forget dependency on sunlight; a glass tube systems generates the green alagal goodness regardless of the weather outside.
Eugène Roebroeck, the visionary behind Lgem, is very proud of the veritable algae wonderland. With a keen eye on sustainability, Lgem shifted from traditional greenhouses to high-tech indoor setups.
Envision glass tubes, each with algae flowing in a 'marble slide' dance, soaking up precisely controlled light and nutrients.
Partnering with another Dutch company, Synalgae, Lgem has grand plans. It's scaling up systems, making protein-rich algae accessible on a larger scale. What's more, their journey has seen remarkable growth, from a small team to a thriving 20-strong crew, thanks in part to recent investments.
What is more wonderful is the product of Lgem's algae process systems has already been tested in a highly nutritious burger with what's reported as 'very tasty ' outcome.
The Netherlands, often famed for its picturesque windmills and tulips, is an unexpected hotspot for this algae revolution.
It's a testament to human ingenuity and a peek into the future of farming.
