Starting the implementation of Spirulina platensis Pilot

Work has begun on the implementation of the Spirulina platensis project, which will multiply and produce algae with a capacity of about 10m3 as an improved system for laboratory production, which consists of closed ponds and the Bioreactor system as a pilot project and is the first of its kind in Palestine. Spirulina platensis project by propagating Spirulina platensis algae in the laboratory of the Research Center at an affordable cost and with high productivity, noting that Spirulina platensis consist of 65% protein, 20% carbohydrates, 7% minerals, 5% fat, and 3% moisture per 100 g, and the percentage of protein in S. platensis is the highest Where it exceeds the proportion of proteins found in meat, chicken and legumes, and the global market for Spirulina has reached about 348 million dollars in 2018, and is expected to reach about 779 million dollars by 2026, according to statistics and studies.
