the transition to
a plastic-free world

About Us

Algreen is a pioneer in the emerging industry of renewable and sustainable solutions based on algal products.


Using innovative biotechnology we are developing alternative products to replace plastics and environmentally unsustainable fossil-based products, used in a wide range of industries such as cosmetics, packaging and labelling, fashion, agriculture and many more.  

At Algreen we use algae, which is available in abundance in the UK, low-cost and under-utilised. Using novel biotechnology developed via the company, we have invented fully biodegradable and compostable formulas in two formats (Biofilm & Bio-microbeads materials) which are ripe for rapid scalability in a big range of applications as a sustainable and biodegradable alternative to plastic.

Using Innovative Biotechnology

Algreen develops sustainable solutions

to eliminate plastics & micro-size plastics.

Our Projects 

At Algreen we develop and aim to commercialise a range of sustainable and biodegradable products that target different industries. Our goal is to replace plastics and micro-plastics across a range of products.

We also have a pipeline of new projects that are at lab stages.
