Indian Seaweed gains Recognition Posted by Krupali on Wed August 11 2010 08:23:17 AM

A process breakthrough of extracting world-class Agarose a gelatinous substance from Gracilaria dura, a seaweed mostly found on Gujarat coast has burst the global myth that Indian seaweeds are poor in quality and productivity. And, yet again it is the scientists at central salt and marine chemicals research
The quality was found to be at par with agarose available in the market and it would be cheaper once the cultivation is scaled up. The other applications of agarose are in the field of molecular biology, electrophoresis, cell culture works in R&D labs, pharma and biotech industries world institute (CSMCRI) here who have achieved the feat. over,
The patent on the process breakthrough has been filed in India. Moreover, efforts are underway to cultivate this algae in fields using raft method.

Omega 3 oil 100% safe Posted by Krupali on Tue August 10 2010 07:10:13 AM 5

Fish oil capsules have not been popular with al due to their fishy smell and also the fear that the fish used for extracting oilmay have been contaminated by ocean pollution.
This purity is especially valuable now. The massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico not only adds petroleum to the sea water, but the chemical dispersants used to fight oil spills may cause equal contamination. These concerns are now added to long-standing concern about mercury pollution, which are as critical as ever.
Even infants can take this;it also has no allergens.

Algae Growth Posted by Krupali on Thu July 22 2010 02:31:02 PM

Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. and BioProcess Algae LLC announced plans for Phase II of its Grower Harvester (TM) algae project located at Green Plains"s Shenandoah ethanol plant.
During Phase I, BioProcessAlgae had successfully demonstrated the scalability of the technology with a 40 times increase in growing volume from bench scale reactors to an industrial setting at their ethanol plant in Shenandoah, Iowa.
Phase II will build on Phase I efforts to optimize growth of algae in their reactors through improved utilization of light, more efficient carbon dioxide absorption and enhanced dewatering and water re-use.
Shenandoah, is the epicenter of algae, said Burns the CEO.
