Removing toxins, making lakes and oceans safe

Algae can be found in all types of waters, including salt water, fresh water, and brackish water (a mix of salt and fresh water). These algae can be grouped into two categories, seaweed and phytoplankton, which are small, single-celled plants.

Cyanobacteria are a type of phytoplankton found in water and moist soil. Although they are not true algae, cyanobacteria are also known as blue-green algae. These can sometimes grow quickly, or bloom. If too much algae or cyanobacteria grow at once or if they make toxins, they can harm people, animals, and the environment. Cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) cause most freshwater blooms of public health concern.

Blooms can harm people, animals, and the environment when they produce toxins (poisons) and/or release harmful gases, become too dense or use up the oxygen in the water.

Some blooms are known as known as ‘nuisance blooms’. While they can discolour water, smell bad, and cause the water or fish to taste bad, they are not usually dangerous to people, pets, and livestock. However, they can discourage people from visiting beaches, drinking tap water, or eating fish from water with bloom.

We utilize the following process to detect, treat and manage cyanobacteria blooms.

A highly effective 3-pronged approach

Formulations based on verified and tested ingredients that are so effective that only minuscule quantities are needed.


A combination of in-situ measurements, advanced remote sensing capabilities, and satellite imagery allows us to fully understand the size, scale, spread, and location of each bloom.


Our evolving AI and deep learning capabilities will enable us to determine, with greater accuracy, the water’s condition and predict future blooms.

This approach is environmentally friendly, sustainable, efficient, cost-effective, fully safety approved and scalable.
