Research and Development

Plentex is committed to an ongoing research and development plan focused on the use of microalgae and macroalgae and other protein sources in aquafeeds, stockfeeds and pet food. 

Plentex continues to monitor developments in the commercial scale growing of microalgae and macroalgae and the extraction of high value products. 

Close partner relationships are being maintained with the South Australia Research and Development Institute (SARDI), the University of the Philippines and Tarlac Agricultural University (Philippines). 

Plentex is closely monitoring international and local developments in aquafeed and pet food manufacture. 

Plentex through PPI is engaged in two R&D projects (ProEn-K and Halymenia durvillei) in the Philippines which could have substantial commercial benefits for PPI and in turn Plentex.
