Today, there is a solution from algae that will eliminate the conflict of food vs fuel that was created by ethanol. This becomes the basis for green chemicals, and introduces a healthier line of nutraceutical products. This process solution is eco-friendly: consumes C02 (greenhouse gas), utilizes non-arable land and requires minimal fresh water.
Photon8: Delivering on the promise of algae:
creating Food (and nutraceuticals) and Fuel
During its drive to render fuel at a cost less than fossil fuels, Photon8's team developed a genetically-improved alga that produces a high fraction of Omega 3s. The remaining lipids are converted to fuel and/or green chemicals. After Aqueous Extraction (Photon8's chemical-free process to isolate the lipids) cell remnants, which are high in protein and carbohydrates have been proven to be above the rest in animal feed studies.
Photon8: First to profitability in fuels, now first to healthier food and nutraceutical products.
