ALGAL NUTRACEUTICALS PRODUCTION PROCESS OVERVIEW
*The carbon dioxide required for the optimum growth of algae can be obtained from industries in exchange of valuable carbon credits.
*The algae harvested from the open ponds are sent to a spray drier system using hot air currents for complete removal of water and the conversion of the product into powder form.
*A cyclone separator and a bag filter are also provided in the spray drier system to ensure that en-trained algae are not carried along with the emission air.
*The algae are then further sent to a decolorizer where they are made into a colorless powder using chemicals such as ethanol.
Algae Providing Balanced Diet
After having found the nutrition to be provided for the perfect balanced diet, we researched various products which can provide this at a minimum possible cost.
Algae was found to be the most suitable one.
We combined the use of two algaes:
Both them can be cultivated separately and mixed together in the powdered form to provide a balance diet.
During our research for an alternate food source, the most important thing we found was providing a balanced diet to the consumers.
For that we first researched the nutrient composition of a balanced diet and found that a balanced diet contains:
