Our Company at a Glance
Algae International Group is quickly moving technologies out of the lab and into commercial-scale algae production. Many new algae farms are scaling up to produce algae oil and biomass for co-products. Algae proven technologies are being implemented today in the scale-up of the new algae industry. Enhancements by researchers will surely continue as algaepreneurs move into commercial algae production. We are united in wanting to help the US to get off foreign oil, to create jobs right here in the US and to reduce CO2 emissions. Since our government and corporate America are slow to move into commercial algae production, algaepreneurs are taking on the task of setting up new algae production facilities throughout the US.
Our strength lies in our objectivity. The Algae International Group members fully appreciate the magnitude of challenges faced by the algae fuels industry; at the same time, we are excited by the enormous potential offered by algae as a biofuel feedstock. Big problems do present big challenges
Algae are already being used in a wide variety of industries and applications, and many newer applications are being discovered. Such a wide range of end-uses enable companies to produce both fuels and non-fuel products from the same algae feedstock.
Algae are excellent bioremediation agents - they have the potential to absorb massive amounts of CO2 and can play an important role in sewage and wastewater treatment.
When cultivating algae, several factors must be considered, and different algae have different requirements. Essential factors include water, carbon dioxide, minerals and light .The algae basically consist of the plant-like organisms (particularly, they are chloroplast-containing eucaryotes) that for the most part live in the sea, but also in freshwater as well as moist terrestrial habitats and as lichen endosymbionts.
