ABO member Qualitas Health was recently featured in the Fort Stockton Pioneer for their innovative algae farm near Imperial, Texas.
Instead of taking crude oil out of the ground this facility is using a brackish underground aquifer to grow algae that’s harvested for its nutritious Omega-3 oil components.
According to the Pioneer:
Qualitas Health algae farm was established in Imperial because of its abundance of available land, sunlight and brackish water, all of which are needed for an inland marine algae farm. It is the largest facility of its type in the world.
