BOSTON, July 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Verde Media Group Inc. (OTC:VMGI), through its Verde Media Biotechnology Division (“VMBD”) is preparing for the next phase of construction for its Pilot and semi-commercial Omega-3 oil production facility in Asia. The company broke ground on the project in May of this year and is currently poised to begin building the most crucial and cost-effective part of the facility.
The Geo Well Fermentation facility (GWF) is an underground earth-vessel based technology that will produce microbial products with a number of advantages. Primarily, the capital investment involved is reduced to half compared to steel based vessels and, secondly, the requirement to maintain a specific pre-defined temperature is substantially reduced because of geo-thermal insulation. Collectively, the technology leads to substantial savings on operating and capital investment that leads to better margins.
Omega-3 oils are mainly derived from marine sources. However more recently the oils can be produced using microbes. VMBD’s exclusive technology utilizes a robust and sophisticated GWF process to grow specialized omega-3-producing microbes in large volumes at substantially reduced costs. The company expects to have its first GWF vessel completed within the next 3-4 months, allowing them to begin trials at pilot and semi-commercial scale. It is anticipated the facility will reach a 10,000-liter scale once fully operational.
Dr. Abidi, CEO of Verde Biotech Division said, “We are excited to kick-start our novel technology to produce omega-3 oils in an economical manner not possible until now, using atypical feedstocks. Our transition from pilot to semi-commercial scale is important to rapidly deploy our exclusive GWF process to achieve commercial scale and begin importing the product for sale in the US.”
