Exploiting microalgae as co2 consuming & inexhaustible raw material for agriculture

  • Labelled Solution
Label Date October 31, 2019
From Spain
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 5-6 - Market competition driving widespread deployment &/"Bankable" grade asset class

The microalgae based agricultural biostimulants are high-value crop inputs in liquid form that, when applied to crops in minute quantities, enhance the nutrients’ uptake by the plants and optimize all of their phenological development phases (from rooting to sprouting, flowering, fruit setting, fattening and ripening). The biostimulants are derived from an optimized selection of different microalgae species which are grown with specific technologies, process in which AlgaEnergy eliminates CO2 from other industries that would have been otherwise emitted to the atmosphere. In fact, for each 5 L of AgriAlgae® a farmer uses, she/he is not only increasing its yields, the resistance of its crops to abiotic stresses and the quality of its fruits and vegetables, but she/he is also responsible for the elimination of up to 2 kg of CO2. Microalgae as a raw material are inexhaustible and very productive (allow even a daily harvest), do not compete with other raw materials (don't need fertile lands), grow in all kinds of waters and are one of the most efficient CO2 biofixating systems (they capture 2 kg of CO2 per kg of microalgae biomass produced). Microalgae-based products also reduce the need for chemical treatments and pesticides and restore soils as the market and context demand. In one single cell, they contain compounds such as proteins (up to 70%), lipids (original source of Omega-3 PUFAs), pigments, vitamins or carbohydrates, among others.

The Environmental Benefits

  • CO2 is captured at a rate of 2kg/kg of biomass produced
  • No impact on any ecosystem

The Financial Benefits

  • A ROI of 75% annually
