WE WORK TO SIMULTANEOUSLY REDUCE CLIMATE CHANGE AND IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS.
US breweries release more than 1.5 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year, which is about equivalent to all of the CO2 output from motorists on the road in the state of West Virginia. CO2 is the world’s most prevalent greenhouse gas and we believe CO2 emissions from industrial processes need to be reduced and eradicated through co-location strategies.
One of the natural products that algae generate from CO2 waste gas are omega-3 oils which reduce the risk of heart attacks and stroke. Currently the most common source of omega-3 oils is fish which actually obtain their omega-3s by consuming oceanic algae in their natural environment. With water pollution rising, recent studies have shown that omega-3 oils from fish can contain harmful chemicals such as PCBs and mercury. In fact, one study found these harmful toxins in children’s vitamin supplements! Boom Algae’s Omega-3 oils are grown in a closed-loop, clean environment so we know that they are pure.
