BADR Investments believes algae present an opportunity for commercial production of biodiesel, fish-feed, pharmaceuticals and other products while falling under BADR Investments’ policy of sustainable Food, Energy and Water.
BADR Investments’ projects are governed by strict internal guidelines of making sure we do not use any resource that could otherwise be used for human, agricultural or livestock uses.
Algae stand out as one of the most promising alternatives for next generation sustainable biofuels, with a potential to supply key markets including transportation, pharmaceuticals, food additives and other human use products.
BADR Investments funded the research and development for biofuel algae production. We have conducted research in identifying suitable strains of algae that produce the greatest yield per area utilizing the available land and sea or brackish water resources, as well as technologies and methods for harvesting algae and oil extraction.
BADR Investments established a Biofuel Algae pilot plant in Jordan, with the aim of investigating the potential of using select strains of microalgae in the production of oils that might be suitable as a non-crop source of energy.
