Young Danish Firm Touts High Volumes of Microalgae to Feed Giants

Young Danish firm Aliga is seeking cooperation with the major fish feed players to use its microalgae-derived products in aquafeed formulations. One big problem for feed manufacturers when it comes to microalgae-derived ingredients is finding steady and reliable supply of sufficient volumes. With their technology, they believe that sufficient volumes could be provided owing to continuous production of biomass […]

Newly Discovered Algal Enzyme Uses Light to Convert Fats into Fuel

Scientists have successfully engineered algae that when starved for nitrogen, put most of their stored energy, into fats. These fats are chemically similar to hydrocarbons and are thus further processed into “biofuel”. However, this processing of fats into biofuel is not a straightforward process. Interestingly, researchers from France also found the solution to the problem from […]
