Green Star Products, Inc. today announced that it has successfully completed Phase III for winter environmental testing of its hybrid algae production facility in Montana.
The GSPI hybrid algae production system is designed to provide a controlled algae growing environment at an affordable capital and maintenance cost, which has eluded engineers for more than three decades.
There also is another press release regarding GSPI that came out today.
Today, Green Star Products, Inc. announced that it has acquired a license to utilize a breakthrough processing technology to convert algae biomass to feedstock oil and cellulose sugars for the production of biodiesel and cellulosic ethanol respectively.
The new process uses an efficient low-cost method to extract the oil and cellulose sugars from oil-bearing microalgae that eliminates the need to mechanically dry and press-extract the algae oil using traditional methods. The sugars from carbohydrate-rich cellulose and hemicellulose can be used to make a variety of products including ethanol and other high demand chemical products. The oil can be made into biodiesel and other products.
Sounds like they are moving forward towards their goal of building a commercial sized algae production facility.
