Algae has emerged as one of the most promising, long-term sustainable sources of biomass in the world. It’s oils can be converted to fuel and the dry mass into animal feed, along with scores of other co-products.
Selected algae can contain up to 50% oil which converts to fuel oil products (very similar to those derived from crude oil).
The 50% remaining, after the oil has been extracted, is a high-protein residual “cake” which is highly suitable for fish or livestock feed.
This makes algae one of the world’s most valuable, sustainable and renewable crops.
