Identification

Given the urgent need to tackle climate change and to avoid pollution, innovations seeking to reduce the output of CO2 in the atmosphere must be developed. The idea to produce green oil out of algae is not new but it was never enough profitable, therefore the need to improve the solution with the right path.

The concept of the process is a closed circuit of water and biomass in a 1.5 hectares area. For this process, only Algamoil strain can be used, this is our patented mixotrophic single-cell alga composed by 50% of lipids. There are four steps during the cultivation of the algae: 1-Photosynthesis to grow up the biomass sequestrating the CO2; 2-separation of the biomass and the water recycling 100% of water; 3-Heterotrophic growth of the biomass with the decomposition of organic waste, or agriculture by-products to increase the lipids percentage, 4-Separation of the lipids from the solid part. Main benefits of our solution are: -To reduce the output of the CO2 in the atmosphere by two ways: (i) sequestering more than 9000 tons of CO2 it in a natural way with the photosynthesis and (ii) reducing up to 20% the output of the drainpipes of cars and trucks with the utilization of the biofuel. To reduce the use of food to produce energy (Biodiesel & Biomethane) -To reduce the use of agricultural land to produce energy. Reduce the production of plastic pollution -The high profitability of this solution for the final client/investor.
