Woods Grain’s site for development at Goondiwindi, Queensland

Queenslandcountrylife.com, in Australia, reports that Goondiwindi’s Woods Grain has secured a $579,000 grant from the Palaszczuk Government.to build an algae farm for livestock production. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, who last week attended the international BIO 2017 conference in San Diego, said Woods Grain was one of six recipients that would help put Queensland at the forefront of the global bioindustrial revolution.

In her words: “Under the project, Woods Grain will seek to establish a new algae farm in Goondiwindi and trial new technology for the extraction of omega-3 oil from the algae. This could produce a high-protein feedstock and open up the possibility of a brand new agricultural industry in the state.

“The Woods family has been at the heart of Australia’s grain industry for more than 60 years and continues to contribute to the strengthening of Queensland’s agricultural economy. In recent years Woods Grain, part of the Woods Group, has been looking at new protein options.

“This has resulted in collaboration with Professor Peer Schenk, at the University of Queensland, who has been researching the opportunity to use microalgae grown in small ponds as an omega-3 oil source for human consumption, biofuels and a protein source for stockfeed.

“Woods Grain has worked with UQ, and in particular Prof Peer Schenk in recent years to support the natural progression of the research to a scale that could see it become a commercial reality.”
