New Solutions Energy Tomorrow’s Energy Needs for Today.

The United States and the world are facing real pressures to find sustainable ways to create feedstock for many of our daily needs, most notably food and fuel. Algae is the best alternative candidate for meeting global needs. Algae can be produced with non-potable water sources on land that is not suitable for other agricultural uses such as urban industrial sites or desolate rural areas. Co-generation projects using waste streams to produce algae for fuel can have economic and environmental benefits.

A variety of oils, fuels, plastics, vaccines, nutraceuticals, human, animal and fish feedstocks are produced from the many strains of algae available. Development of cost-effective algae growing systems is the key to guiding this developing industry to wide-scale implementation.
