Algae Production Systems focuses on the manufacture, sales and support of equipment for the production of Algae, Algae Oil and Algae Biomass

Algae production is a growth industry with significant potential.

As early as 2008, there were more than 300 commercial biodiesel plants in operation with a combined production capacity of over 1.2 billion gallons of biodiesel, along with hundreds of commercial-scale distributors selling the fuel throughout the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska. Today there are over 1100 commercial fueling stations providing algae based biodiesel fuel.

Biodiesel has become the only alternative fuel to have fully completed the health effects testing requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. Quality standards have been developed and it has been legally registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as a legal motor fuel for sale and distribution.     Read More »

Algae Oil and Biomass

Algae Oil is the result of the process of growing the algae microorganism to sufficient mass that it can be harvested and processed through a system where the walls of the single cell organism are caused to burst, releasing the hydrocarbon liquid (Lipid) contained within the cell. This oil is collected and processed to reduce the percentage of water in the oil to the point that it is usable as a vegetable oil feedstock in the transesterification process whereby biodiesel fuel is manufactured. Another use for algae, which is proving to be even more profitable than the production of biodiesel fuel, is the use of the algae biomass as ORGANIC fertilizer. It is environmentally friendly, safe for human consumption and produces higher crop yields.     Read More »
