ALGAENERGY, founded in 2007, is a technological company working in the microalgae biotechnology sector. It has been promoted and is managed by a group of entrepreneurs and scientists with solid financial backing and extensive experience in this field.
Two world leaders in renewable energy and (bio)fuels, and are shareholders and technology partners in ALGAENERGY.
Professor Miguel García Guerrero is the lead scientist advisor and a member of the Board of the Company. He is Professor of Plant Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Seville. As one of the few specialists in the biotechnology of photosynthetic microorganisms in the world, he currently leads the ”Biotechnology of Photosynthetic Microorganisms” group at the Instituto de Bioquímica Vegetal y Fotosíntesis (a joint venture between the University of Seville and the Spanish National Research Council –CSIC-).
With substantial R&D programmes costing millions of Euros, financed by both public and in-house funding, ALGAENERGY is linked to some of the most recognised international microalgae research centres. ALGAENERGY’s mission also includes the exploitation of the enormous talent and ability available in Spain within this area of science and expertise.
ALGAENERGY is confident that the products and technologies that it aims to discover will improve wellbeing and bring progress to various regions of the world, preserving the environment, nature and life on our planet.

Fluid Imaging Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1999 as a spinoff from Bigelow Laboratory for Oceanographic Sciences in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and has grown every year since. The company’s business thrust is best stated by our mission statement:
Fluid Imaging Technologies Mission Statement:
Fluid Imaging Technologies, Inc. will provide innovative imaging-based particle analysis products and services on a global scale with a world-class commitment to customer service, quality and value.
|Fluid Imaging Headquarters in Yarmouth, ME.|
Since our founding, we have been the world-leader in particle analysis instrumentation based upon digital imaging technology. Our flagship product, FlowCAM®, was the first imaging particle analyzer on the market, and continues to lead the way in hardware innovations. Our particle analysis software, VisualSpreadsheet©, was the first particle analysis software to use sophisticated statistical pattern recognition algorithms for automatically characterizing different particle types in a heterogeneous solution.
In April of 2007, we outgrew our original offices in Edgecomb, ME and moved to our current location in Yarmouth, ME. Located just 20 minutes from Downtown Portland (Maine’s largest city) and the airport, the current location houses our entire production, laboratory and office spaces.
The Hunter’s power stations could play a role in the future production of biofuels for Australia’s airline industry.
A report produced by the CSIRO’s Energy facility in Newcastle claims algae, forest waste, crop residues or urban waste, could all be used to make jet biofuels.
It says greenhouse emissions could be cut by 17 per cent and it could reduce Australia’s reliance on aviation fuel imports by $2 billion dollars a year.
Manager of Carbon Futures, Paul Graham says if fuels can be developed from algae, then power stations are an ideal source.
“The exciting think about algae is that it doesn’t need particularly clean water and there’s a fairly wide temperature that acceptable for the water as well,” he said.
“They need to be located near a concentrated source of carbon dioxide so that’s something that could be located in the Hunter valley where we’ve got a high concentration of power stations.”
