 Kansas State UniversityJames DrouillardProfessor Academic Integrated Strategies Algal biomass as value-added feed for livestockIn my role at Kansas State University I conduct research in nutrition of cattle and other species, with emphasis on strategies to improve growth efficiency, carcass quality, and animal health. Areas of interest include utilization of novel feedstuffs; development of value-added feed manufacturing processes; role of dietary lipids in animal health, reproduction, growth efficiency, and carcass composition; and effects of cattle diet on meat quality, fatty acid composition of meat, and implications for meat sensory properties and shelf-life. We have conducted numerous studies to evaluate several species of marine algae as value-added animal feeds, including ongoing trials with Nannochloropsis oculata.

Our animal research facilities consist of several sites throughout the state for conducting-small, moderate, and large-scale animal production experiments ranging from individual animals up to studies with 1,000 or more animals. Through collaborative efforts with several on-campus colleagues, we are able to quantify emissions of enteric greenhouse gasses using head boxes (GreenFeed) or dual-comb laser spectroscopy. When combined with precision monitoring of individual animal feed consumption, this provides unique capacity for evaluation of GHG mitigation strategies.

Campus laboratories I oversee are well equipped for conducting in vitro screening experiments to assess digestion kinetics, metabolic intermediates, and end products of digestion, with capacity to evaluate up to 100 products simultaneously. We maintain three chemostat fermenters ranging from 1 to 10 liters working volume. Furthermore, our chromatography suite is equipped with four gas chromatographs, including FID/FID; FID/TCD; FID/FPD; and GC-MS. Our HPLC, UHPLC, ICP-OES instruments offer additional capacity, allowing us to evaluate a very broad range of analytes that cover the spectrum of lipids, carbohydrates, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and numerous other substances. A separate animal feed manufacturing facility is available for assessment of the suitability/compatibility of novels feeds in conventional feed manufacturing systems.

 Integrated Lipid Biofuels LLCDr. Liang YuCTO Small Business Advanced Manufacturing (Industrial) HTL, conversion, algae, biomass processingThe Bioprocessing and Bioproduct Engineering Laboratory (BBEL) at Washington State University (WSU) has developed and patented the sequential hydrothermal liquefaction (SeqHTL) technology for extracting protein, polysaccharides, and bio-oil from algae biomass. ILB (Integrated Lipid Biofuels) LLC has the exclusive right to commercialize this technology.

Different from classical HTL, SeqHTL consists of a multistage process. In principle, the SeqHTL process can be used to selectively recover different types of compounds by fine-tuning process conditions due to the adjustable solvent properties of water. The solubility of different components and the rate of hydrolysis and Phase partitioning may be controlled. Generally, polar and moderately polar compounds can be extracted at lower temperatures, while low and non-polar targets are extracted at higher temperatures. Furthermore, SeqHTL employs sufficiently high temperatures to loosen and disrupt the recalcitrant biomass components, increase matrix porosity, reduce viscosity, and increase the diffusivity of bound-form compounds. Owing to its flexibility, SeqHTL can be used to process mixed feedstocks like wastes, and the hydrothermal conditions ensure that the product streams are completely sterilized with respect to any possible pathogens. Finally, biomass content is reduced after the first stage of the process; thus, mass transfer between subcritical water and target molecules is enhanced in the second stage, ultimately improving the extraction efficiency and reducing the amount of solid residue left. When used for processing algal biomass, SeqHTL allows fractionation of various cell constituents in the first stage of the liquefaction process by using a lower temperature and pressure to separate proteins and polysaccharides from lipids; in the second stage, higher temperature and pressure are applied to convert the remaining algal biomass to bio-oil and a small amount of biochar.

ILB has the expertise and lab equipment to conduct SeqHTL-related research and is able to provide the 20% match for any budget amount requested for conducting the proposed work.

 Wayne state universityKishore Kumar GopalakrishnanResearch Scientist Academic Cross-Cutting 2Background: Leveraging my expertise in isolating and cultivating microalgae to produce value-added products using secondary wastewater effluent and flue gas, I have made significant progress, including the identification of two novel microalgal species. One of these species, previously unknown to science, possesses the remarkable capability to produce beta-carotene. With a background in biotechnology, environmental science, and sustainability, I conduct research aimed at addressing challenges within the bioeconomy. With a proven track record of research, I have been actively involved in advancing sustainability and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.

Interest: I am interested in investigating the usage level of flue gas carbon for the cultivation of algal biomass for value-added animal feed products, especially for freshwater fish cultivation. This aligns with my interest in advancing sustainable practices and promoting environmental stewardship in aquaculture. My experience in utilizing flue gas as a source of carbon for algae cultivation and optimized cultivation conditions in an airlift photobioreactor have maximized carbon utilization efficiency in our research. By exploring the potential of algal-derived feed products, particularly as a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), we aim to reduce reliance on sea fish as a primary PUFA feed source for freshwater fish cultivation. This can reduce carbon release into the environment and reduce environmental pressures on marine ecosystems while enhancing the nutritional quality of freshwater fish.

Capabilities: With expertise in algal biotechnology, lifecycle analysis, and environmental impact assessment, I have utilized flue gas from thermal power plants to cultivate algae in airlift photobioreactors, which gives me the ability to innovate and implement sustainable cultivation methods. We will test how well these feed products improve the health, growth, and nutritional value of freshwater fish by characterizing them and looking at how carbon is used in algae cultivation studies and its application.

 Sargassum Eco Lumber Corp.Raquel de Antonio/Andres de Antonio SimancasCEO/Investigator and Mechanical Engineer Small Business Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Technologies Office (AMMTO) Topic Area 1: Conversion of Seaweeds and Waste Algae to Low Carbon Fuels and ProductsSargassum Eco Lumber delivers transformative results with far-reaching implications in the realms of environmental sustainability and commercial viability. By integrating processed Sargassum seaweed and recycled medium and high-density polyethylene plastics, we produce a durable, eco-friendly lumber alternative. This composite material significantly mitigates marine pollution by repurposing Sargassum seaweed and plastic waste, thereby enhancing coastal resilience and contributing to the blue economy.

The results include the successful creation of a sustainable building material that rivals traditional lumber in strength and versatility but surpasses it in environmental friendliness. These developments have substantial implications for coastal communities, where this lumber can be used in construction, reducing the ecological footprint, and promoting circular economy principles. Sargassum Eco Lumber is innovatively positioned to revolutionize the construction and manufacturing industries by introducing a sustainable, low-carbon alternative to traditional building materials. Our technology focuses on the production of Sargassum Eco Lumber from sargassum algae which leads to significant CO2 emission reductions.

The creation of Sargassum Eco Lumber is directly addressing some of the most pressing environmental challenges of our time: deforestation, the Sargassum crisis in coastal areas, and plastic pollution. By providing a sustainable alternative to traditional wood, our project significantly reduces the demand for timber, thereby helping to curb deforestation and preserve vital ecosystems. At the same time, our innovative use of Sargassum seaweed tackles the growing crisis caused by massive Sargassum blooms that affect coastal communities, marine life, and tourism. Instead of viewing this seaweed as waste, we repurpose it into valuable material, turning a problem into an opportunity. Moreover, by incorporating recycled plastics into our lumber, we are taking a stand against plastic pollution, giving a new lease on life to materials that would otherwise contribute to environmental degradation. In creating Sargassum Eco Lumber, we are not just producing a product; we are fostering a more sustainable and resilient future, demonstrating the power of innovative solutions to tackle environmental challenges head-on.

 Idaho National LaboratoryBrad WahlenGroup Lead, Biological Preprocessing Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Bioenergy Topic 1 and 2Idaho National Laboratory has developed storage approaches to preserve algae biomass as a means to mitigate for seasonal variability and to maintain quantity and quality of post-harvest algae biomass through harvest and queuing until biomass can be processed. Algae biomass is susceptible to degradation and an active approach is necessary to ensure that bulk biomass (macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipid, and protein) and high value algal products remain intact for the production of fuels and products. INL has storage reactors ranging from 125 mL to 100 L to conduct this research. INL has gas chromatographs, HPLC, LC for quantitation of algae composition, algae products, storage products and degradation products. INL has employed proteomics and metagenomics to interrogate changes to post-harvest algae metabolism and changes to the microbial community that occur in storage.

INL has a suite of preprocessing equipment designed for processing wet material such as algae biomass. This includes mills, screw press, screw extruder, washing system, chemical dewatering/product extraction, UV degradation chamber, Wet sieve system, and hydrocyclone (to remove soil and ash). These tools allow for the development of preprocessing systems for macro- and microalgae to enable more efficient conversion or product recovery.

We also have conducted TEA/LCA analyses on wet waste processing.

We are interested in discussing how we can leverage the capabilities of the biomass feedstock national user facility to achieve success in your project and help BETO and FECM meet their goals.
