Creative use of wasted flare gas to help grow microbes for fish feed. I wonder how this will look on a bag of fish food ingredients?
...The company plans to capture methane from flare gas in the oil-and-gas sector in Alberta and convert it on site into methanol. It will then be transported to a production facility where the methanol will feed and grow microbes in bioreactors.
...Later this month, the Center for Aquaculture Technology will test DeNova-treated pellets in adult Atlantic salmon completing a life-cycle evaluation of the fish.
"We had very powerful results," said Stratton. "Certainly very healthy fish across all of our test diets and very bioavailable, digestible, happy fish. So we're excited and we believe that we're going to [get] the same results in this trial."
The company's protein in fish is safe for people to eat, she said.
Once the bacteria is grown out, it is dried to a powder that can be added as an ingredient in feed pellets.
