Our Beliefs

We founded Phycobloom because algae offer a natural and sustainable carbon fuel source.

In a sustainable future, biofuels will be needed to power the industries that other renewables cannot.

We need them to fuel planes and ships, and to create plastics and other products.

But the only biofuel that can be sustainably produced at scale is algae.

We believe we can make algae a viable alternative to fossil fuels and change the way we power our world.
