Algae Makes Protein From Manure: Nitrogen Problem Solved

algae makes protein from manure  nitrogen problem solved | Breaking News

The company ‘I’am Algae’ in the Netherlands (Bolsward, province of Friesland) thinks it has a solution for the nitrogen (livestock farming manure) problem. It is possible that small organisms such as algae can solve the nitrogen and ammonia problem in agriculture. The company 'Hi, I'm Algae' from Bolsward has come up with a formula. The company showed a test set-up with algae tanks during the 'Weekend of the Weterschap' (Weekend of Science). This arrangement consists of a device that separates manure into a closed system.

The ammonia does not escape through separation in a closed system. After separation, the largest part is nitrogen-containing, which is suitable for offering to algae in special tanks. They then make it into protein, which in turn is a raw material for food. The algae also absorbs CO2 for this process and they make raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry, for example.

Can we grow Algae on land that otherwise go to waste?
Algae is remarkable in the way that it grows because it does not need to take away space from traditional plants such as corn, wheat or beans. Algae can be grown almost anywhere as long as the proper conditions are created. Algae uses water that is not suited for regular crops and facilities can be built on any type of land, making it easy for farmers to farm algae in areas where traditional crops would not do well. 

For example, according to Henk Jan Hulshoff of the Hi, I'm Algae company, a farmer would recycle completely without nitrogen or ammonia emissions. And so there is no more manure on the land. Because of the production of protein, the farmer no longer needs to use concentrates. "That means that many soybeans from South America no longer have to be imported," says Hulshoff. "And then no extra jungle has to be cut down."

Dairy, Chicken And Pig Farmers

The system is not only suitable for dairy farmers, but also for farmers with chickens and pigs. In half a year the company wants to further investigate the market with two demonstration systems of different sizes.
