Seambiotic is the first company in the world that is utilizing flue gases
from coal-burning power stations for algae cultivation. Seambiotic was
founded in 2003 with the objective of growing and processing marine
microalgae using a revolutionary ecologically based environmental
system. Our technology and unique know-how can be profitably
exploited in two major areas: bio-fuels and food supplements.
For the past three years, Seambiotic has carried out an R&D pilot at
the Israeli Electric Corporation’s power station located in the city of
Seambiotic’s efforts in cultivating microalgae utilizing flue gas
emissions from power plants is a giant step towards the reduction of
air pollution and global warming.
The pilot has proven enormously successful and reached an impressive
production of algae containing a high percentage of PUFA, oil and
carbohydrates which are suitable for processing into bio-fuels.
The world is expected to move from the cultivation of corn and sugar
cane for energy purposes to the cultivation of marine algae. This will
be accomplished by using existing resources and without harming
agriculture as a source of food. Seambiotic is developing a practical
model that is likely to result in the establishment of marinealgae farms
in locations around the world characterized by arid land but with
access to seawater and solar energy.
