The 3 most important and profitable algae species for business are:

*Nannochloropsis Oculata, the highest lipid producing Algae for fuel.

*Crypthecodinium cohnii, produces DHA a nutritional supplement for infant formula.

*Haematococcus pluvialis, produces Astaxanthin the highest value nutritional supplement.


Nannochloropsis oculata (Biodiesel) production. Algae may play a vital role in production of hydrocarbons and chemicals in the near future.

Growth rate of Nanochlropsis Salina – Under optimum laboratory conditions, the max. growth rate was 0.030/h which correspond to a doubling time of 23h. The max. lipid production rate was 4g/m2/day. – Using flocculation or using soxhlet extraction method provides a potential source for ecofriendly and cost effective large scale harvesting of microalga for biodiesel production.

With nannochloropsis microalgae oil transesterification of microalgae oil gave a high FAME yield in the presence of Ca(OCH3) 2solid catalyst 92.0 % FAME yield. The results suggested that this process is inexpensive, feasible, effective and a potential method of producing high quality biodiesel from phototropic microalgae.

Crypthecodinium cohnii (DHA) – grown in the dark with Biodiesel glycerin waste.

DHA algae requires no light to grow and eats the Glycerin from Biodiesel production.

DHA is a high value Omega3 oil used in baby food and formula for brain development.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid found in cold-water, fatty fish, such as salmon. It is also found in fish oil supplements, along with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Vegetarian sources of DHA come from seaweed.

Omega-3 fatty acids are good for your heart, and your body needs DHA for a healthy brain. Infants need DHA, especially during the first 6 months of their lives, so their brains, eyes, and nervous systems can develop as they should. DHA is found in breast milk and is added to some infant formula.

Our bodies naturally make small amounts of DHA, but we must get the amounts we need from food or supplements. Most people in the Western world do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids in their diet.

Haematococus pluvialis (Astaxanthin) – the highest value Omega3 oil

Astaxanthin is the darling of the Health Food industry its wholesale price is very high per pound.

Video Astaxanthin – How’s made from Haematococcus Pluvialis Algae

Astaxanthin can be extracted from 2 main sources which is salmon and micro-algae namely Haematococcus Pluvialis. Astaxanthin is super anti-oxidant natural ingredient.

Astaxanthin is derived from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis Astaxanthin is a red colored carotenoid pigment that naturally occurs in most marine crustaceans and some species of fish. It is responsible for the reddish tinge that usually accompanies these animals, a prominent example being the pink colored flesh of the salmon fish. Salmon has been associated with numerous health benefits; in turn some of these have been traced to astaxanthin. Some of those mentioned benefits are in the areas of eye health, joint health and heart health. Astaxanthin has an antioxidant action up to 500 times that of vitamin E, which has led some experts to term it as “Super Vitamin E”. Astaxanthin is the darling of the Health Food industry and sells wholesale for $1400 a pound.

Ekong is the owner and operator of Delaware Biofuels he has experienced many challenges from permitting to finding a suitable location for the new start up. Just goes to show you hard work and perseverance does eventually pay off. So congratulations Ekong and we wish you continued success. They made some test samples this week and I wanted to show you the product that they made with the B-500 commercial biodiesel processor provided for them which is a dry wash system using Purolite macro porous resin.

First Test Batches of Biodiesel For Delaware Biofuels


2013 NBBJOIN US FOR THE 10th ANNUAL NATIONAL BIODIESEL CONFERENCE & EXPO! at booth #829  in Las Vegas Feb 4th-8th 2013

Capturing  momentum at the 2013 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo.  The  theme of this year’s conference, MOMENTUM, is aptly chosen.  At 1.1 billion gallons and climbing,  biodiesel has become a true force in our nation’s fuel supply.  Will your business be positioned to capture  that momentum in 2013?  Exhibiting at the  2013 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo is sure to move you forward.

Most substantial biofuel companies have developed an internal system for the accumulation and recycling of frying oils (UFO) or waste vegetable oil (WVO) to generate biodiesel.
The product will consider various activity industries: restaurants, fast foodshops, universities as well as the domestic sector.

What is Biodiesel?

The renewable fuel produced from the transesterification of organic oils and is called biodiesel or methyl ester. The procedure removes and breaks bigger and more viscous glycerol estermolecules that will not combust properly in present day diesel powered engines.
Bio-diesel is the 21st century and has moved outside of experimental and niche markets straight into the main stream simply ask Willie Nelson and his Bio Willie group. Willie Nelson Supports Bio Fuel and has formed Willie Nelson Biodiesel Company to distribute his own blend of biodiesel fuel called BioWillie. Made of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent fossil diesel, or B20, BioWillie is currently available at various locations in Texas and around the Eastern Seaboard.

Biodiesel can be used in any diesel powered car or truck in pure form or mixed in any ratio with regular petroleum-diesel. Biodiesel possesses combustion characteristics very much like mineral diesel and can replace it in most uses. Much less toxic than table salt and as bio-degradable as sugar, biodiesel is most often blended with petroleum based diesel.

Biodiesel is considered a best replacement for standard fuels globally as a key transportation fuel source because it truly is environment friendly. Using it in blends extend the current non-renewable fuel supply chain infrastructure and logistics.

Biodiesel can be made from a wide range of biomass oils, such as used cooking oil (UCO) and tallow (animal fats). Methanol or Ethanol is used in conjunction with sodium hydroxide in controlled production enabling the oil-based components to be changed into fatty acid methylester (FAME).

Green Benefits of Using Reprocessed Vegetable oils for Biodiesel

Recycled vegetable oils originate from oils utilized in the hotel resort and food production sectors and in some cases household kitchens. By recycling used vegetable oil, its disposal will be avoided and underground well-water supplies and municipal sewage lines are protected. Utilizing biodiesel cuts down on most contamination pollutants from standard diesel motorstriggering a positive impact in the planet and human health.

Biodiesel is created from alternative biomass resources (vegetable oils, both virgin and recycled), which significantly reduces reliance on fossil fuels, while increasing national security and diversity of resources. The usage of biofuels will create employment and stimulate our overall economy nationally not in overseas countries around the world.
