One source, only solution
... algae for omega-3
Algdeha provides algal sustainable solutions for fish-based industries.
Do you know up to 40% of wild fish turn into fish meal and oil before even comes to our table ?
Due to the hunting pressure, we put on the oceans, the number of fish we have caught from the ocean has been constant since 1990 . To meet the increasing demand, the aquaculture industry has shifted to farm fishing and it has become the fastest growing food sector since the 90s with 10% growth per year. But we are feeding farm fish with wild fish to mimic wildlife and get desired nutritional value which is not a sustainable way to eat fish for the next 15 years.
As Algdeha, we are creating high omega-3-contained microorganism-based solutions obtained from our unique production method for industries that used fish oil and fish meal.
Step 1: Fermentation
One way to enhance the productivity of algae and reduce production time is by starting with fermentation. In addition, heterotrophic production offers a sustainable solution by utilizing food by-products as a source of carbon and nitrogen. This not only reduces waste but also provides a cost-effective medium for production.
Step 2: Offshore
Depending on the species that we want to produce, we can enrich nutritional content via our patented offshore production and increase yield. Photosynthesis, a crucial part of production, takes place on the sea surface, allowing us to harness wave energy for mixing, generate heat through the sea surface, and utilize sunlight for lighting. This reduces production costs for mixing, heating, and lighting.
Step-3 : Drying
We strive to make the most of the valuable resources that algae can provide. Our goal is to extract and utilize every beneficial molecule that algae has to offer, including proteins, fibers, and antioxidants. We believe that by maximizing the potential of these resources, we can create sustainable and cost-effective solutions for a variety of industries, from aquaculture to food production.
Why Fermentation ?
0,5 g/l - 8 g/l vs > 50 g/l Does these numbers make sense ?
We can count numerous advantages of fermentation technology while comparing it with classical algae production systems from water footprint to energy consumption. But production efficiency is so clear for comparasion and doesn't need further explanation. How would feed the world with algae while producing them between 0.5 g/l - 8 g/l in classical production methods ?
The power of algae: high nutrition brings more impact:
Producer of omega-3 in food chain
More lipid content than fish-based product
Saving wild fish to be hunted from ocean
More omega-3 content than fish-based product
