Brilliant Planet is unlocking the power of algae as a scalable, affordable and near-term solution to climate change. Our innovative process allows vast quantities of microalgae to grow on desert land, without using fresh water by harnessing a natural process that contributes to the health of our oceans and air.
At Brilliant Planet you will meaningfully contribute to solving one of our planet’s most pressing issues: climate change. You’ll own your role and have a lot on your plate, but you’ll be part of a passionate team of diverse professionals that will support you along the way.
Brilliant Planet was founded in 2013 and is funded by several of the world’s leading climate technology investors. We are headquartered in London, with operations in Morocco and Oman. We’re a company with science and engineering at our core and following eight years of pioneering R&D and three years of pilot operations we are now progressing towards commercial-scale operations.
