Global Clean Energy Teams with Algae Farm

December 4, 2012

Global Clean Energy, Inc. and Algae Farm USA, Inc. have formed a strategic alliance to bring feedstocks to sustainable, scalable and profitable applications based on the work accomplished by Algae Farm.

Algae Farm’s pilot prototype and full-scale model, with their Proof of Concept Pilot to Scale Production Validation Report, were completed in 2010. The Company’s Algapond was completed in January 2012.

According to the company, Algae Farm’s indoor Algapond system enables production in excess of 10 times the Algal Biomass than typical outdoor systems using the same amount of space. The Algapond system will also allow for the extraction of algae oil from the algal biomass.

The objective of the alliance is to produce commercial volumes of jatropha, algae and switchgrass. Both companies believe that through application of Algae Farm’s system and refinements by Global Clean Energy, a waste-to-energy conversion solutions company, feedstock will be able to be grown profitably anywhere in the world where power, water and indoor or outdoor controls are available.

Global Clean Energy plans to begin commercialization of feedstocks at locations now in development by the company.
