Cultivating Algae-derived Products
Algae to Omega Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries produce, market and distribute algae derived products. The company utilizes environmentally clean technologies, coupled with innovative production methods and proprietary technologies to cultivate and harvest algae biomass to supply organic raw materials for the functional foods, nutraceutical, animal feed and personal care markets. The Company’s focus is to produce and sell high demand products that will be used to manufacture nutraceutical products such as Astaxanthin and contaminant-free Omega 3 oil for human and animal nutrition as well as natural raw materials for the beauty and personal care industries.
Algae to Omega’s proprietary “state of the art” closed looped production system combines a unique technology for cultivating algae in a controlled environment and methodologies for separation and extraction of omega 3 oil, astaxanthin and other high valued nutrients. Our team of experts and scientific researchers have devised a scalable modular production system that is low-cost, energy-efficient and environmentally sound. The Omega system generates faster algal growth rates versus less efficient open pond and non-continuous closed-loop systems. Furthermore, the Company has developed a whole cell extraction technology that utilizes a unique blend of oils, food grade acids and low heat during the extraction process. This allows the Company to omit certain energy intensive steps and reduce production costs. Typically most companies utilize supercritical CO2 extraction, which exposes heat-sensitive oils to temperatures as high as 400F or Hexane, which is carcinogenic and has to be removed from the end product. Our Whole Cell Extraction technology is a chemical free process, which replaces typically used harsh solvents and high heat while preserving the bioavailability of the products.
