After many years of research and development on new bio-based raw materials, ALGO PAINT® company has been innovative by substituting local renewables sources for fossil energies.

As far as conception is concerned, we have moved to a short supply chain, contributing thus to a collaborative and circular economy as well as creation of regional jobs for the future. Moreover, we help protect our environment through the lowest environmental impact and carbon footprint. We are facing indoor pollution.

The quality of indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the worst outside air. Produced from natural raw materials, ALGO® TM contributes to improve the indoor air quality of our houses and contributes thus to our welfare: “Healthy paint for healthy habitat”. The range ALGO® TM is composed with bio-based substances up to 98 % and emits less than 1g./liter of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

Our bio-paint is guaranteed free from pollutant, free from solvent and scentless. European Ecolabel certification, Life Cycle Analysis of our paint and French A+ label recognize both real innovation and specific properties of our ALGO paint®. ALGO® TM is a fine symbol of the high priority we give the environment. Life cycle of our bio-paint is optimized thanks to its formulation: ALGO® TM includes raw materials from local and renewable resources: algae from French coasts (Brittany). ALGO® TM dares to by-pass raw materials from petroleum origin and stands out from conventional painting available on the market. Indeed, conventional water-borne paints contain until 65 % of substances derivatives of petroleum.

Our bio- formulated painting eschews fossil energy linked to petroleum in favor of plant chemistry, giving added value thus to algae from our French coasts. There are many advantages to give value to algae: Culture of algae require neither fertilizers nor pesticides nor freshwater. Algae do not impinge on agricultural lands used as agriculture areas for populations.

Algae are not invasive and have positive impact on the biotope because they sequestrate CO2 and release oxygen. ALGO® TM adds value to algae, local and renewable raw materials from French coast (Brittany).
