Cyanotech joins ABO as Gold Member

September 12, 2018

Mawae Morton, Chief Executive Officer at Cyanotech Corporation

Microalgae-based, high-value nutrition and health products company , Cyanotech Corporation, has joined the Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) as its newest Gold-Level member. ABO is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the development of viable commercial markets for renewable and sustainable commodities derived from algae.

“Cyanotech was one of the first, large scale commercial algae facilities in the US. Starting off as a small, 5-acre farm in 1984, we have since grown into a 90 acre, fully vertical-integrated production facility.  We are expanding to 96 acres with the acquisition of a six-acre production and research facility from Cellana LLC,” said Mawae Morton, Chief Executive Officer of Cyanotech Corporation.

“This facility, to be renamed as the Cyanotech Innovation Center, will accelerate our efforts to develop new technologies and production systems,” he added.

“Cyanotech helped to pioneer the concept of microalgae as a supplement and successfully built the consumer market for microalgae products, Arthrospira platensis and Haematococcus pluvialis,” said Mr. Morton. “The knowledge that we have acquired in the production and marketing of algae over the last 30 years we feel will be a valuable addition to help support ABO’s campaign to advance other algae-based products to the market.”

Cyanotech produces microalgae ingredients, spirulina and astaxanthin, which are used in their popular nutritional supplements, Hawaiian Spirulina® and BioAstin® Hawaiian Astaxanthin®. “We really value educating consumers about the health benefits and sustainability of microalgae and we see microalgae innovation and consumption continuing to grow and expand into new sectors in the future. Because of this, Cyanotech is excited to start building a relationship with ABO as the world- wide market for algae and other nutritional ingredients continues to grow,” he said.

Cyanotech was founded in 1984 by Dr. Gerald Cysewski, who chose the Kona Coast of Hawaii due to the pure, unpolluted, clean growing location and access to deep ocean water from a depth of 2000 feet. The facility is located in a BioSecure zone, free of all pesticides and herbicides.
