Sapphire Energy

Sapphire has developed a technology platform that uses non-potable water, such as seawater, and non-arable land to grow algae that captures CO2 in open ponds and provides us with renewable solutions that can improve people’s lives and make the planet more sustainable.
By focusing on these enormous challenges, the Company embarked on a new agricultural revolution—a cultivation platform capable of delivering low cost, highly valuable algae biomass.
