I came across this while doing some research this morning. This is U.S. firm is working with someone in New Brunswick to establish “our first integrated commercial scale open-ocean algae biomass production operation.”
HDS International Corp. (OTCQB: HDSI), a provider of industrial ocean-based biomass production and other high-value eco-sustainability solutions, today provided an operational update with respect to its exclusive technology license covering the territory of Back Bay, New Brunswick, Canada (“Back Bay”). Situated off of the Bay of Fundy, Back Bay is located within a region known as having some of the world’s highest water level differentials between tides. The result is significant naturally occurring water exchange and constant nutrient replenishment available for open-ocean platform algae provided by the tidal displacements, eliminating certain production costs found in competing open-pond or lab-based commercial algae production systems. The geographic characteristics of the region also provide for favorable harvesting conditions during low tides, from which the Company expects to derive incremental operational benefits. “Back Bay is home to carbon emitters interested in reducing their carbon footprint that recognize the value in doing so in conjunction with biological sequestration systems like ours,” said Tassos D. Recachinas, HDS International’s CEO. “Coupled with widely available open-ocean, the availability of willing potential project partners across the production vertical and the demonstrated support of the local government for our type of value proposition within the region, Back Bay is an attractive location to establish our first integrated commercial scale open-ocean algae biomass production operation.”
The Company is currently in discussions with potential project partners and other vendors within the Back Bay territory.
Located in Canada—a ratified member of the Kyoto Protocol implementing regulations for carbon dioxide emission caps—the Company expects projects developed within the Back Bay region to ultimately generate revenues from, among other things, the sale of renewable algae oil and residual biomass, as well as from the generation of carbon reduction credits.
