 Project objective

The global population recently surpassed 7 billion and is projected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050. Food demand is expected to increase to 3B tons in 2050, an increase of 43% compared to 2009. This in turn will have dramatic consequences not only on humans’ health that will consume lower quality food produced by means of less capital-intensive techniques, but also on the earth that will be strained by climate change, increasing drought frequency and severity, soil depletion and disease, and water pollution. Ensuring sustainable sources of food in light of these issues is of critical importance for society as well as the environment. Food companies are therefore turning to alternative methods of food production to meet the growing demands and regularly use artificial food ingredients to provide necessary levels of protein and nutrients. Arborea has developed the BioSolar Leaf, the world’s first cultivation system which harnesses microalgae and sunlight to produce healthy, sustainable natural food ingredients. Microalgae has great potential for cultivation as they contain lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, micronutrients, antioxidants and can be cultivated under harsh climatic environments. The BioSolar Leaf cultivation system is the only sustainable ground-breaking algae cultivation system that enables complete control of ideal culturing parameters for production of natural food ingredients. Arborea’s ingredients are wholly vegan, GMO and hormone free, and the technology permits a sterile cultivation that eliminates external contamination, to produce the cleanest and purest ingredients. During the feasibility assessment, Arborea will size the market, establish a go-to-market strategy and a supply chain. BioSolar Leaf will then be validated in collaboration with food producers to demonstrate the effectiveness of the technology.
