Algaetech has embarked on a RM27 million (~$8.5million USD) project to become one of the largest producers of http://lichvaalstereo.co.za/purchase-of-cialis Haematococcus Pluvialis biomass in the region. Since 2006, Algaetech’s main research focus has been Haematococcus Pluvialis, the microalgae that produces the super antioxidant Astaxanthin.

Dato’ Paduka Syed Isa Syed Alwi, Managing Director and founder of the company since 2004, is currently also looking at expansion in Brunei and other countries. “With support from the government and Berjaya’s participation in Algaetech, we are now in pole position to turn the algae industry into a reality in Malaysia,” he said.

Algaetech also secured a RM20 million (~$6.3million USD) project financing from Malaysia Debt Ventures Berhad, in August, 2013, which will contribute to the estimated project cost.
