Algal Feed and Food

MBD has factored production of various forms of algae-based animal feed and high-value human foods into the delivery of a number of waste stream bioremediation projects.

Waste water streams containing nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous can be harnessed to produce various forms of algal biomass suited to production of animal feed and high value human foods and additives. Both micro algae and macro algae are well established sources of such nutrition.

With the world's population continuing to grow by about 60 million people per year, demand for sustainable, efficient food production continues to grow. Ever increasing strain is being placed on agricultural systems’ capacity to deliver affordable food and nutritional products. Not surprisingly, the World Health Organisation has identified diminishing food security as a major threat to mankind over coming decades.

MBD believes that the potential to increase algae food and feed production, by expanding upon existing markets and by creating new ones, to be significant.

Most importantly, this can be achieved whilst reducing the environmental impacts of industrial waste streams, without any need to occupy fertile agricultural land or displace existing food production.

Water Bioremediation

MBD Energy has invested heavily in research and development of viable water bioremediation solutions for heavy industry (including power stations and minerals processors), mining factory farming and aquaculture.

Strain Selection

A core aspect of MBD Energy’s capacity to biologically remediate a wide variety of waste streams is our ability to provide a match between the waste contamination type and the biological organisms best suited to help.

Growth Systems

Choice of commercial-scale cultivation system is determined by evaluation of waste stream types and locally occurring algae strains, harvesting potential and the best available commercial options for the on-going production of algal biomass.
