Palm Oil Replacement
Palm oil production also leads to an increase in human-wildlife conflict as populations of large animals are squeezed into increasingly isolated fragments of natural habitat. The habitats destroyed frequently contain rare and endangered species or serve as wildlife corridors between areas of genetic diversity.
Palm oil has been and continues to be a major driver of deforestation of some of the world’s most biodiverse forests, destroying the habitat of already endangered species like the Orangutan, pygmy elephant and Sumatran rhino.
It is important that the palm oil industry continues to invest.
With Green algae growing approximately 10o times faster than palms, we hope to be able to at least replace some of the palm oil by farming micro algae.
Thanks to SCRA and a for now secret partner, Algistor are expanding our lab to be able to farm different species to see which micro algae that under our circumstances produces the best replacement.
The pilot will also help us further develop our AI through machine learning, enabling us to further automate our processes to maximize our harvest.
