Atacama Bio Natural Products S.A. is a private biotechnology corporation that cultures algae to extract healthy ingredients for human well-being.
Its name comes after the surrounding Atacama desert, which is world famous as the astronomer’s paradise due to its pristine atmosphere. Its location, away from any agricultural or populated areas, strongly guarantees secure algae cultivation with no environmental pollution.
A 250 acres facility in a high intensity sun radiation region with pure water from the Andes mountains makes Atacama Bio a prime producer that can greatly expand its production capacity to meet demand.
The four founders and partners of the company, a Biochemist, a Marine Biologist, a Chemical Engineer and a Mechanical Engineer led, with perseverance, a 13 year research and development project to scale up from the laboratory the production of microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. The result is a robust proprietary culture technology of closed and open photobioreactors based on a high level of cleanliness and asepsis.
