Growing Algae

Growing algae for food, nutrients, biodiesel, animal feed or use in cosmetics is extremely rewarding.

algaeThis amazing organism has so much to offer us and has been around for billions of years. It has also been in used by a range of different cultures for many thousands of years.

Of course there has been a lot of hype about algae. However, commercial bodies now understand the importance of algal products. For instance, NASA has partnered with a company under a Space Act Agreement, to model the growth of microalgae for use as aviation fuel. ExxonMobil is one of the world's largest oil companies, and announced in 2009 that it was pumping US$600 million into developing biofuels from algae. According to BioMatNet, worldwide Spirulina production is expected to reach 220,000 tons by 2020.

In these pages we consider the various uses and provide some background information on algae generally. We are also providing in the months to come a range of eBooks to show you exactly how to make your own products. These new ebooks will show how to grow and make food, fertilizer, and animal feed.
