Safer water and better lives through pioneering biosciences
Brought to you by our laboratories, at the University of Wisconsin Research Park
Our lab focuses on the development of three types of products: bacterial products natural to a lake or pond, biostimulants to stimulate a pond’s unique bacteria, and products to affect a plant and speed its degradation. At Naturalake Biosciences, our first and most important role is that of a research lab. We dedicate our resources to studying the whole spectrum of pond and lake problems at our state-of-the-art biological laboratory. The knowledge we gain from our research is used to develop natural and sustainable bio-technologies.
Kevin Ripp, Director of Science and Innovation, Naturalake Biosciences
Kevin has degrees in chemistry and biology and has been leading the development and application of the Naturalake Biosciences product line since 2000. In addition to our in-house research, we have set up a partnership with phycologists Jim and Linda Graham at UW Madison along with their company AlgaXperts. Kevin is motivated by the lack of innovation in the world of lake treatment; Because there has been only one new chemistry for treating lakes in the last 15 years lake applicators have grow very dependent on chelated copper products which many algae have grown indifferent too. Kevin and our team create technologies that addresses excess nutrients in the water and formulate products to reduce chemicals when they are used, to help them better get into the inner resting structures of the plant and improve the degradation of the dead matter.
