The proposed sites for the algae biodiesel and fish food development are in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, India and will utilise the GB3000 algae enhancement technology system from GNE-India, used for growing algae for the production of fish feed, proteins and biodiesel.

Liran Kosman, CFO of World Health Energy, says: "We look forward to working with Prime Inc. India in the design, development and support of a cost-efficient algae production farm. We anticipate scaling up operations and completing a number of significant algae projects in 2012."

WHEH recently acquired the algae technology company GNE-India, which holds the distribution and licensing rights to the GNE GB3000 system, to grow algae quickly and efficiently for the production of biodiesel and commercial fish food protein.
