Cultured Microalgae produce Omega-3 Bio-Lipid Oil
Renewable energy technology combines aquaculture with sustainable energy. It is an economically viable, sustainable and successful method of producing mass quantities bio-lipid oil (mainly Omega-3 oils), which brings real life alternative technolgy to the forefront.
After years of privately funding their own research, the Bio-Lipids Technology Group, LLC has opened their doors to transferring their technology to public and private companies around the world. The company utilizes the strengths of its “advisory board”, made up of the world’s top scientists in the fields of petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, aquaculture, economics and nutrition, to custom develop implementation plans for its clients. Projects are currently being planned throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America.
Micro-algae are capable of producing more bio-lipid oil than any other feedstock or terrestrial crop. Comparing the bio-lipid yield from micro-algae to that of soy and canola , micro-algae produces 200 times more bio-lipid oil (on a per acre per year basis) than soy and 150 times more than canola. In addition, the chemical makeup of the micro-algae (bio-lipid) oil burns cleaner as biodiesel and has more Omega-3 (ALA) and DHA than that of soy or canola oil.
The company takes an “extensive” approach to culturing algae and can even produce organically certified bio-lipid oil. Utilization of existing, but non-operational shrimp ponds, salt flats or fish ponds is the preferred method.
Major markets for the production of bio-lipid oil includes: biodiesel, fish-feed and pharmaceuticals. The Omega-3 bio-lipid oil can directly replace fish meal as the source of protein. This now eliminates the monopoly that fishmeal has on the aquaculture industry. The cost to produce bio-lipid oil is significantly less than the purchase price of fish oils and petroleum based diesel fuels.
Micro-algae production is enhanced when other aquatic species are cultured in conjunction, to provide essential nutrients for the growth of the micro-algae. This approach allows for the continuance of the culture of the existing species, while producing a secondary crop (bio-lipid oil) that may be more valuable than the primary species. Additionally, we can culture the micro-algae without having to culture other aquatic species, it just makes sense to get two crops for the price of one.
