About Us

SymbolAlgaeneers Inc is a biopharmaceutical and biomanufacturing company with headquarters and state-of-the-art facilities in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Our core strength is to harness microorganisms to produce things that people care about, in gentle, sustainable, and affordable ways. We like to think of it as ‘nanofarming™’, since we mostly use small, fast-growing microorganisms like algae to do the heavy lifting. Our Motto is ‘grow your own factory™’! Our Vision is to be part of creating a healthier world, with clean air, clean water, and plenty of living things (including people!), living in balance and harmony.

In practice, most of our biomanufacturing, or ‘algaeneering™’ as we like to call it, is done using microalgae, an amazing microplant with unbelievable synthetic capabilities. However, we also use the often untapped biodiversity and talents of fungi, plants, yeast and bacteria on a project-by-project basis. Our roots are in the biofuels industry, but we soon realized algae could do a LOT more than make biofuels. Today, our biggest products are biopharmaceuticals, including biosimilars and biosuperiors, vaccines, and enzymes.
