Competitive advantage of cultivation technology:
Rather than fighting biofilms, BioProcess Algae embraces them. The technology at the heart of BioProcess Algae cultivators is a unique high surface area, biofilm-based approach to enhance light penetration, productivity, harvest density and gas transfer – all traditional bottlenecks to low-cost algae cultivation. The Grower Harvester™ technology is a flexible platform that allows for economical production of biomass and secreted metabolites.
BioProcess Algae LLC designs, manufactures, and operates integrated systems to support bioreactor operations and dewatering efforts. Current demonstration activities are supported by commercial scale modular systems that include Grower Harvester™ cultivators, flue gas tie-ins and fully automated operational support such as pH and temperature control, CO2 and nutrient delivery, CIP capability, dewatering and water reuse.
We are currently engaged in strategic partnerships with industry, national laboratories, and academia to help support strain selection and optimization and downstream processing efforts. We welcome inquiries from potential new collaborators.
