FeedMe™ Algae uses the Algae.Tec enclosed modular high-yield, algae growth manufacturing system to produce sustainable and renewable proteins and oils. The enclosed photo-reactor system offers cost, scale and yield advantages over the open pond method.
In addition, the system is designed to capture carbon dioxide waste (Carbon Capture and Storage CCS) from power plants and manufacturing facilities, which feeds into the algae growth system. The technology platform therefore delivers a reliable supply of sustainable and renewable advanced algae products.
Our technology has demonstrated and validated exceptional performance versus competitive algae process technologies:
- Enclosed photo-bioreactor system
- 10-fold productivity improvement
- 99+% biomass & oil product yields
- Optimum algae product quality
- Carbon dioxide sequestration
- Step-change reduction in plant footprint requirements
- Substantial capital/cost savings
FeedMe™ Algae has carried out more than six years of laboratory, bench-scale, pilot tests and product trials. Production begins in the lab where there are several different species of algae. Once the algae have grown to sufficient quantity, it is then transferred from the lab and test unit to the commercial growing system where it continues to reproduce until such time as it is ready for harvest.
Enclosed Algae Growing System
We naturally produce algae and algae-based products utilizing Algae.Tec’s technology. Our Photo Bio Reactors (PBRs) contain LED lights and bubbler systems. The production areas are climate controlled, which provides the suitable environment for the algae to rapidly reproduce. A portion of the system is located on the exterior of the building, where natural sunlight is also utilized in the growing process.
Solid State Lighting Advancements
By incorporating Algae.Tec’s technology, FeedMe™ Algae is constantly striving to innovate & improve upon its solid state (LED) lighting. Our LEDs high-efficiency power regulation and optical conversion lead to maximum radiometric output at minimal power consumption, all while integrated into a low-profile design. Dimming is achieved through the use of a pulse-width modulation micro controller, which allows for a fine-tuned output that is catered to varying algal species. Algae Energy’s custom water-cooled element ensures that junction temperatures are kept well below the manufacturer’s recommended specifications, which means minimal color-shifting & a longer lifespan of each LED chip. FeedMe™ Algae’s circuit boards are custom designed in-house, which allows for flexibility & variability in meeting each projects needs.
