Pharmaceutical importance . Spirulina is a better of its exceptional nutritional content. The process involves inoculation of spirulina culture in tanks having mechanized agitators to oxygenate the water.The various uses include Food Supplement . The blue-green algae is removed from water surface and allowed to dry before purification and production of powder by spray drying process.proteins and vitamins . Spirulina is a better source of protein than either beef or soybean. meter surface area of water in a day.customer are willingness to pay for the product is premium price and so high end technology can equally viable as in the case low end .It may be produced in organic form or using chemical fertilizers .Hence it has tremendous growth potential .Therapeutic Value . About 20-25 gm of Spirulina grows in 1.WHO and NASA.minerals .A lot of value added health drinks and products can be generated by using this algae. It is also one source of protein than either beef or soybean. PROJECT PARAMETERS CAPACITY Proposed Capacity of the Plant 12000 Kg Dry Spirulina per annum (12 MT) . It can be produced in very low cost and high cost depending upon the quality standard of infrasture facility . The product is currently being hailed as the superfood of the future because of its exceptional nutritional content.blood deficiency . The PH value of the water may be maintained between 8 to 11 .This algae contain essential amino acid .Internationally .production quality parameters and standarization of product followed .It nutritional value is recognized by UNO.Its regular use can prevent lever diseases.NASA recognize this algae as a space food .This is done by using chemical agent in this regards .Organic products fetch better price in national and international level.diabetics etc .0 sq.This alge will grow at a 25 C to 35 C and sunny days are required for the smooth growth.malnutrion . cardiac vascular diseases . one-celled form of blue-green algae that gets its name from its spiral shape.Commercial Production of Spirulina Algae KSIDC PROJECT PROFILE FOR COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION OF SPIRULINA ALGAE INTRODUCTION Spirulina is a simple.
