About Us

Living Ink is a biomaterials company on a mission to use sustainable algae technologies to replace petroleum-derived products, such as ink. Currently, the majority of pigments used within industry are derived from petroleum, such as carbon black. We are changing the way pigments are made by using algae as colorants for ecofriendly Algae Ink™ products. We are commercializing a black algae-based pigment that has a negative carbon footprint, bio-based, resistant to UV-light exposure and is safe.
