As land degradation is a serious problem that threatens our livelihood in the form of vital resources, Alganize's goal is to turn deserts into forests. In this way, they want to ensure the availability of raw materials. For this endeavor, they rely on the power of microalgae.

The idea came about when Nils was working at Solaga, a spin-off of the HU that also specializes in algae. During a closer examination of a microalgae strain, he came across the application in the agritech sector.
