We are bringing a new scientific approach to food production. Through our groundbreaking indoor production process, we convert clean energy into food, producing the most sustainable crop in the world - microalgae rich in Omega-3 and protein.
Our patented technology platform, strategically located in Iceland and integrated into one of the world’s largest geothermal plants, combines advanced aquaculture and machine learning to consume less than 1% of land and freshwater typically used, while yielding 10x the product.
Our unique production platform allows us to control and optimize growth conditions, overcoming the challenges of traditional algae cultivation which is susceptible to variations in weather, inconsistent composition, and contamination risk.
VAXA in the news
Inside this vertical farm, carbon-neutral algae grows under glowing pink lights.
Most vertical farms grow greens like lettuce or spinach, but a facility in a remote corner of Iceland, run by a startup called VAXA Technologies, grows microalgae instead. A new study found that the farm’s process is carbon neutral.
