Cellana, Inc. Signs Letter of Intent with Galil Algae for the Commercialization of High-Value Algae Biomass for Aquaculture and Other High-Value Applications
Jun 23 14
Cellana, Inc. announced that it has entered into a letter of intent with Galil Algae Cooperative Agriculture Society Limited with the objective of partnering for the production of high-value algae products for aquaculture applications. Currently, Cellana produces industrial-scale quantities of ReNew(TM) Algae -- high-value algae biomass rich in Omega-3 nutritional oils, proteins, fuel-grade oils, cosmetic-grade oils, acids, and polysaccharides, as well as other valuable micronutrients -- at its Kona Demonstration Facility in Hawaii. At its facility in northern Israel, Galil Algae currently produces a variety of whole-algae products that are rich in Omega-3s for aquaculture applications. The main goal of the program contemplated by the letter of intent is to identify, cultivate, develop and scale up algae strains with immediate commercial value, emphasizing the high-value components for existing aquaculture, mariculture, nutraceuticals, pharmaceutical and/or cosmetic applications. The starting points for the commercial venture are to include the existing high-Omega-3 algae strains of Cellana and Galil Algae, as well as (i) potential new and improved strains identified through non-GMO strain optimization techniques such as selective breeding and/or (ii) additional naturally occurring strains identified through bioprospecting. In addition, the letter of intent contemplates Cellana and Galil Algae exploring the establishment of a new algae research and development center in northern Israel. This new R&D center, together with the R&D activities to be undertaken at Cellana's facility in Hawaii, would be a focal point for the development and testing of new or optimized strains of high-value algae biomass.
