Sunlight, seawater and wind: A simple recipe for ambitious algae grower Susewi

Oct 15, 2019

“Young company Susewi has a big ambition: To become the world’s largest producer of algal biomass. And following recent commercial-scale trials in Morocco, the company appears to be on the right path.

According to founding chief executive Keith Coleman, who set up Susewi with Raffael Jovine in 2013, microalgae are themost successful organisms on the planet. They can convert sunlight into food 20 times more efficiently than cultivable crops and absorb and store carbon more efficiently than any other living organism. For each metric ton (MT) of algae produced, 2.8 MT of carbon dioxide is absorbed.”
