Egypt is Going Algae Green

 Seagriculture EU 2024
In step with the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations climate convention, or COP27, now being held in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, we pass along a video of Rega Green Energy’s Algae Modular Automated Plantations (A-MAP) technology, and their Hurghada project.

Rega’s goal for the A-MAP project is to develop viable economic and sustainable solutions to help reduce carbon emissions.

Rega’s plantations on the Red Sea’s Hurghada will be the world’s largest man-made carbon sink and are expected to facilitate the reduction of a substantial amount of CO₂ in Egypt. Additionally, their tank farm operations will enable them to introduce algae as a green fuel source, by producing algae biomass in large quantities.

Developers of A-MAP Hurghada say that this project will bring Egypt to the forefront of countries championing a greener global economy. It is also expected to boost the country’s economy, reduce unemployment, and allow Egypt to play a vital role in the global climate crisis.
