Newly Published Paper Illustrates the Potential of a New Technology to Produce Single-Cell Protein While Also Treating Palm Oil Mill Effluent

GLENDALE, CO--(Marketwired - November 12, 2014) - Nutrinsic CEO, Leo Gingras, announced the publication of a paper titled "Using palm oil mill effluent to produce single-cell protein" in the October 2014 issue of Inform magazine, a publication of the American Oil Chemists Society. The paper reports on the global increase in production of palm oil and the corresponding creation of vast quantities of palm oil mill effluent, which presents a serious environmental liability for palm oil producers. The paper also describes a sustainable and cost effective technology for treating the effluent while concurrently producing high quality single-cell protein for sale to the animal nutrition industry.

The article is the result of research conducted by Nutrinsic scientists at the Company's laboratory in Aurora, Colorado. Written by Dr. Tracy Yates, senior scientist at Nutrinsic, and Mr. Gingras, the paper outlines a cost-effective solution to treating palm oil mill effluent. Gingras summarizes: "The findings presented in this paper illustrate that the application of our technology to palm oil mill effluent provides significant benefits to the palm oil industry and mitigates a serious environmental liability. We look forward to commercializing the process."

The article lists a number of benefits that include clean effluent water for use in irrigation or return to the environment, production of single-cell protein for sale to the animal nutrition market, improved economics for palm oil mills, and the mitigation of greenhouse gases discharged into the atmosphere.
