World Health Energy Holdings, Inc., a public holding company developing joint venture partnerships for algae production for biodiesel and commercial fish food, announced today the appointment of Dr. Meir Silver, formerly at Philips and Siemens, as New Director of Science for Green Energy Algae Fuel Projects.
Dr. Silver has over fifteen years' experience in Research and Development, Clinical Research and Development in both medical devices and biotechnology. He has held positions of increasing responsibility at Siemens Medical Systems and at Philips Medical Systems, and several successful start-up companies. He holds a B.S. in physics with honors from Lafayette College, an M.A. in Biophysics and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from The Johns Hopkins University.
World Health Energy Holdings, Inc. recently acquired GNE-India, an algae technology company with the distribution and licensing rights to a unique and innovative technology, the GNE GB 3000 system, to grow algae quickly and efficiently for the production of biodiesel and commercial fish food protein. GNE-India owns and retains the territorial rights for distribution and sales of the proprietary technology to both India and Sri Lanka. The company has exclusive distribution and licensing rights to the GNE GB 3000 system in India and Croatia. Earlier this year, the GB 3000 system was used to grow a combination of local algae species, as well as Chlorella, targeting the product to the fish feed and biodiesel markets.
World Health Energy Holdings, Inc. is focused on bio-fuels produced from algae, which boasts substantially higher yields in comparison to ethanol derived from corn, rapeseed, jathropa and palm oil. The company also works with visionary enterprises in the multi-billion dollar renewable energy arena producing progressive, broad-based solutions for better physical, nutritional and environmental health worldwide. In addition, the company is pursuing an ancillary use for algae -- the efficient production of high-protein fish feed for commercial fish farms.
Dr. Silver said, "I am excited to be part of this important global green energy and food project."
