MBD Energy Ltd – Multi-faceted environmental company with blue chip strategic partnerships

MBD provides environmental waste management solutions with an emphasis on the clean-up of industrially contaminated waste water to comply with government mandated waste water licensing controls in jurisdictions across the Asia Pacific region.

The company’s technologies, based on the natural bioremediation properties of algae, provide environmental clean-up solutions across a wide range of applications, ranging from heavy metals from power stations and minerals processing, through to waste nutrients from aquaculture and farming. In addition to selling cost-effective industrial waste water solutions, MBD targets the conversion of large volumes of associated algal biomass into commercially viable products including fuel, feed, fertilisers and pigments – and is currently building major projects with blue-chip partners and clients in China, Thailand and Australia.

ASI holds a dominant position in the South Australian Southern Zone Rock Lobster Fishery with 30% of TACC.

Significant growth opportunities are available to it through the sourcing of incremental lobster volume in other Australian Fisheries (States) and expansion into other premium live seafood species suitable for the Chinese market. The company holds an important Seafood Import and Food Distribution License in China enabling it to sell direct to the rapidly emerging retail and hospitality sectors at higher margins.
