Dr. Udaya Wanasundara will be presenting at Algae Biomass Summit in September

For Immediate Release

July 8th, 2014


Saskatoon – This past week Dr. Wanasundara was notified that his poster presentation entitled Processing of Microalgae Oil for Food and Nutraceutical Use was accepted for presentation at the upcoming Algae Biomass Organization (ABO) – Algae Biomass Summit in San Diego.

POS is an active member of the ABO and has been active in micro-algae R&D and micro-algae semi-commercial processing since the early 1990’s. Today, micro-algae work represents a significant portion of POS’s R&D and toll process business. “Probably about 65% of business is in micro-algae,” said Dr. Rick Green, Vice President of Technology in an April interview.

At POS we recognize that many companies are interested in biofuels from algae in the long-term and we continue to conduct R&D in this area; however where we have been extremely successful helping clients is in identify short and medium term revenue opportunities in the form of interim or co-products derived from their algae. Dr. Wanasundara’s presentation will highlight some of the processing opportunities we believe exist.

POS Bio-Sciences is a contract R&D organization. We specialize in the extraction, fractionation, modification and purification of bio-based ingredients. We work with leading industries to develop new products and expand bio-processing capacity. From ingredients to bio-products to green solutions, our team brings bench strength and brilliant solutions to help companies grow.
