Environmental Benefits

Aquaculture, the fastest growing food-producing sector in world. The potential worldwide aquafeed market for farmed fish is:

  • $90.96-billion in 2015
  • $168.23-billion by 2021

The popultion of the planet is expected to increase by another 2.5-billion people by 2050.  According to the UN-FAO this will require 70% more land area to grow food crops and meat protein.  To meet this future population growth will require an estimated 60% increase in food demand:  meat 70%, fish 90%, dairy 55%.  The food Ingredients market for protein concentrate and amino acids in the US is 2.633-MMT/yr.

  • $16.8 billion for animal protein
  • $2.4 billion for plant protein
  • $4.2 billion for amino acids

Market Analysis

There is growing demand for low carbon biofuels such as bioethanol, biodiesel and renewable natural gas (biogas).  Under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), levels of biofuels were mandated under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).  This included a $1.01/gal tax credit for “second generation” biofuels, such as the bioethanol produced by Prosys's advanced biorefineries.


  • Saves limited water resources;
  • Utilizes brackish water to that traditional crops cannot;
  • Offers a leap in agriculture productivity with increased crop yields
  • Reduces energy use with increased efficiency and biofuels utilization;
  • Minimizes chemical fertilizer use with recycling of nutrients;
  • Revitalizes fallowed farmland;
  • Lowers carbon emissions with recycling of CO2; and,
  • Uses no GMO’s or pesticides in crop production.
