In Primorye will create a biofuel of the future

The possibility of creating third-generation biofuels from raw materials based on aquaculture is being studied by specialists of the Far Eastern Federal University and the Institute of Marine Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov told the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev about this at a meeting of the Council for Economic Modernization and Innovative Development of the Russian Federation.

Manturov said that the volume of the world market for products from renewable sources of raw materials is about $ 70 billion and is growing steadily, while in Russia this sector is just beginning to develop - the existing market volume is small, about $ 600 million a year. According to him, “one of the most underdeveloped niches in the field of renewable raw materials is aquaculture. The world market for industrial aquaculture, which is estimated at $ 14 billion, is dominated by China, providing 61% of the total volume. "

The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade shared that the production of substrates for bio-additives, components for the food industry and aquaculture feeds is the most promising for development in Russia. As an example of an innovative project in this niche, he cited aquatic parks created by the efforts of the Far Eastern Federal University and the Institute of Marine Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

"Specialists are studying the possibility of using aquacultures as raw materials for the production of biofuel now for the third generation, as well as components for the chemical industry. But this area is still far from practical application, "- he shared.
