GSR's process converts excessive waste nutrients into certified organic fertilizers and soil amendments for food producers and gardeners. Our patented technology outputs fertilizers that are balanced and complete, containing all three of the major nutrients, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K) to provide food producers and gardeners with a solid form of fertilizer for supplementing soil nutrients and building soil fertility. Unlike inorganic or chemical fertilizers, fertilizers from our process provide other secondary micronutrients (calcium, magnesium, etc.) and trace elements in addition to the primary NPK nutrients for healthy growth of plant leaves, stems, roots, and resistance to diseases promoting healthy fruits and vegetables as well as overall plant growth.
Currently, we are developing products for serving the high-growth, high-margin
supplement markets. According to 2016 Transparency Market Research, the
nutraceuticals market is predicted to register rapid growth in the years to come
due to consumers' increasing inclination towards healthy and nutritious food,
dietary supplements, and beverages.
The nutraceuticals market sector holds a broad category of products to benefit from our process including food supplements, antioxidants, high-protein additives, oil, etc.
We are developing protein feed supplemnent for livestock animals.
The GSR-AD-BOLTTM and GSR-FLOTM processes provide products and services to convert waste nutrients into valued byproducts and reclaimed cleaner water for on-site operations. Nutrient runoff from the agricultural sector has especially been blamed for algae blooms affecting natural water bodies across the globe. Excessive nutrient loads feeding algal blooms are a financial burden on drinking water treatment, hurt the tourism and recreation industry, commercial fishing industry, property values, and affect the health of humans, pets, and the environment as per the Environmental Protection Agency:
The GSR-AD-BOLTTM enhances the economic and environemental performance of digesters designed for power and/or renewable natural gas production, by creating marketable valued products from low/no value digestate produced by digester systems.
Our vision is to produce ‘drop in fuel’ from recovered nutrients that can compete with the fossil fuel/oil market. Oleaginous algal-based drop-in biofuels sparked the interest of oil companies following the two decade long Aquatic Species Program launched in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter with a $25 million US DOE grant. Technologies have progressed worldwide to get closer to the vision of growing algae fuel and wean from limited oil supplies inflicted by regional conflicts. With our waste to valeu technology in place, we are uniquely positioned to bring doen the cost of liquid fuel production as demosntrated in our Farm to Fly project supported by the fuel end users.
Algal-based bioplastics are in the early stage of development to serve the high demand bioplastics sector. Several types of bio-plastics opportunities in the market include cellulose based plastics, poly-lactic acid, and bio-polyethylene. The newer addition to bioplastics would serve the increasing demand for biodegradable alternatives to current conventional plastics. Our waste to value technology brings this option to next level.
A whole world of chemical molecules is starting to emerge from algal-based feedstock inputs encompassing bio-succinic acid (an alternative to phthalic anhydride, adipic acid, and maleic anhydride), arabinitol, aspartic acid, glucaric acid, levulinic acid, malic acids, sorbitol, succinic, xylitol, etc. We are gearing up to bring this potential to markets.
