  • They are prolific growers and produce ten times more biomass per hectare compared to the most productive agricultural crops.

  • For each tonne of algae harvested, 1.8 tonnes CO2 is consumed.

  • The biomass is easily processed due to the absence of lignin

  • There are more than 100,000 strains


Bioengineered microalgal strains can produce alcohols, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and complex biochemicals in commercial quantities. Within the next 5-10 years we will be able to bioengineer strains to produce any commodity biochemical or petroleum replacement.

 

Global R&D efforts to engineer microalgae strains to produce valuable products is also prolific, with most major Big Oil, Chemical, Engineering, Mining and Utility companies establishing their own microalgal strain development research programmes.

 

In order to produce sustainable ‘designer’ biochemicals, companies will employ the most efficient microalgae cultivation engineering on the market in order to be competitive.
