SEVAS SPIRULINA PROJECT
Interest in Spirulina sp. as a potential source of food, was started late before 1640 in Mexico. Spirulina has the highest protein (65%) of any natural food. In spite of immense uses of the species, awareness about this nutrient supplement in developing countries is still insufficient, people should comprehend the real significance of the species as an excellent food supplement, disease resistant product and as an animal feed (Low grade Spirulina).
Academicians and researchers worldwide have started various projects on Spirulina, however Indian villagers are not conscious of or benefited by this wonderful species. Not only this species is useful as a nutrient supplement, but also be a great economic investment for them. People in developing countries like Thailand and Myanmar produce tons of Spirulina powder for exporting it to the developed countries.
This project aspires on the establishment of small-scale industries of Spirulina production with processing and marketing. This would generate awareness about the species and would definitely provide self-employment opportunities for the deprived villagers.
Sevas Educational Society has developed two technologies.
First Technology: Investment is greater than 30 Lakhs and up to 150 Crores and land required is minimum 2 Acres to more than 200 Acres.
Second Technology: Investment range is 0.5 Lakh to 25 Lakhs and minimum land required is 20 cents to 3 acres and production capacity starts @0.5-30 kilogram Spiruina powder per day.
