In California, Aurora Algae debuted its fiull “A2″ product portfolio, consisting of A2 Omega-3, a family of Omega-3 oils aimed at the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical markets; with the goal of providing a natural, sustainable and cost-effective alternative to fish oil and fermented products; A2 Feed, a family of protein-rich algal grains specifically designed for the animal and aquaculture markets; A2 Fuel, a family of biomass and biodiesel applications, and A2 Protein, a family of protein-rich powder products for the food and beverage industry.
Aurora VP Leslie van der Meulen described the company’s first A2 Omega-3 product, A2 EPA Pure (eicosapentaenoic acid), as a “game changer, with a new sustainable, continuous source of EPA in the highest natural concentration available to date. It will allow our customers to safely invest in the abundant application potential of EPA, knowing their supply is guaranteed.” Auraora Algae says that its “crude” algal oil contains a concentration of 65 percent EPA, versus the industry standard of “crude” fish oil at 18 percent.
The company will officially open its six-pond demonstration facility in Kurrantha, Western Australia on May 4th, and will be up to full production at the site (15 tonnes of biomass per month) within 30 days of the opening.
