Each CO2 m3 absorbed by algae releases exactly one O2 m3 (so oxygen is an important added value byproduct in microalgae production). Starting from microalgae, biodiesel production fixes (avg.) 3.85kg of CO2 per kg of retrieved fuel, and produces 3kg of moist biomass also for each kg of retrieved fuel.
Phytoplankton is not grown massively currently because it doesn't exist yet a viable, cost-effective and reliable Industrial Process to achieve interesting qualities and quantities.
Producing microalgae profitably (€/m2) by PhotoBioReactors (PBRs) requires:
• Engineering and modular construction
• Full Automation
• Low maintenance
• Maximum productivity in crop (kg/m2-yr)
• Guarantee the product quality
• Maximum rate of conversion of CO2 in algae (light stress, exposure times)
• Recovery and use of O2I'm a paragraph.
See-Nergy possess a complete Industrial Process based (among other patents granted) on a PBR that ENSURES a microalgae production (kg/m2-yr) of, at least, 5 times higher (500%) than other PBRs technologies.
See-Nergy believes that, with its technology, levels of productivity from 8 to 10 times the conventional FBRs technologies performance are easily achievable.
See-Nergy offers its leading edge technology and extensive know-how to his customers’ biomass projects.
Phytoplankton is the most primitive but successful biomass on earth.
Microalgae are almost the only organisms able to reproduce exponentially.
Produce them massively would provide huge amounts of protein, vegetable oils and actives for drugs, while it would be a way to capture the CO2 exhausted by the industry.
