BioProcess Algae, KD-Pharma Bexbach sign Omega-3 oil offtake agreement

June 29, 2012 |

In Rhode Island, BioProcess Algae and KD-Pharma Bexbach announced that they have entered a commercial supply agreement for the production of EPA-rich Omega-3 oils for use in concentrated EPA products for nutritional and/or pharmaceutical applications. Under the agreement, BioProcess Algae will supply microalgal oils which will be refined by KD-Pharma’s proprietary Supercritical Fluid Technology to produce highly-concentrated vegetable sourced EPA oils.

BioProcess Algae is currently running a commercial-scale facility that demonstrates the full co-location benefits of capturing carbon from an adjacent ethanol plant and converting it into high-quality feedstocks for downstream partners. The facility is integrated with the Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. ethanol plant in Shenandoah, Iowa as BioProcess Grower Harvester bioreactors have been tied directly into the plant’s CO2 exhaust gas since October 2009.
