AlgaeLink has Developed a New Method of Oil Extraction for the Production of Algae Oil

Press release

AlgaeLink has developed a new method of oil extraction for the production of algae oil without the use of any expensive or dangerous chemicals, centrifuge, dryer or oil press

The Netherlands – AlgaeLink, a European leader in alternative energy production, announced today that they have developed a new way to extract oil out of wet algae paste. With this new method the algae paste is collected from the AlgaeLink reactor through filtering or centrifugation and directly, without any drying, processed in AlgaeLink‟s newly developed oil extraction system for which patent is pending. This production process saves a lot of time and energy. This system not only makes the use of algae oil eco-friendly but also the production of it. Total power consumption used in a 45m³ per hour oil extraction process is just 26 kW to turn 50% of the algae paste into oil.

AlgaeLink is a in The Netherlands based global manufacturer of scalable photo-bioreactors for the production of algae developed with patented technology. Algaelink‟s large scale, commercial size photo-bioreactor systems are so different from other systems available on the market today, that they have applied for five world-wide patents on items which are crucial to make any commercial photo-bioreactor function to it‟s fullest extent.

AlgaeLink is engaged in research and development of algae cultivation as an energy source for the production of biodiesel, which is an economically feasible and eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based fuels. Micro-algae have the highest potential of energy yield in vegetable oil crops. Some species of algae are ideally suited for biodiesel production due to their high oil content, some as much as 50%, and their extremely fast growth rate.

Hans and Marco van de Ven, founders and CEO‟s of AlgaeLink, are rightly proud of their newest system. They are especially proud of the fact that no chemicals are used during the whole process of algae growing, harvesting and extraction.

Marco: “Since we don‟t use any chemicals, the whatever is left of the algae paste may be sold for it‟s many specific and attractive compounds. Some compounds are very interesting as nutritional supplements, vitamins and antioxidants, such as β-carotene and astaxanthin. As well as important applications in the food industry, the paste can also be used in the pharmaceutical industry as it contains sterols, which can be used as building blocks for pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, cyan bacteria are a potential source of compounds with biomedical applications, such as antimicrobial, antiviral and anticancer compounds.”

Hans: “We manufacture the best products available on the bio energy market today and sell them at very attractive prices. Our smallest 45m³ per hour oil extraction system only costs 70.000 euro. We invite potential buyers to visit our manufacturing plant in The Netherlands to evaluate our products, check the quality of the materials we use and see our demo plants. We are building a world-wide supply chain and network that is sustainable and which delivers value from „earth-to-engine‟. Our vision is to be the world’s leader in the algae industry.

Nature gave us oil from algae; perhaps we should try Nature’s way again

    I looked at the Algaelink site. They show the whole process and it DOES include a centrifuge in their processing.

  2. Fred Says:

    See this Algaelink site for the system loop where it shows the centrifuge as part of their system: http://www.algaelink.com/low_cost_photobioreactor.htm

    http://algaelink-bioking-scam.blogspot.com seems to shows that it is not cost effective anymore?
