Production of biofuels from certain microalgae and cyanobacteria would appear to be the most promising alternative to current methods, since its yield is very high, sustainable, uses either wastewater, brackish or seawater, does not require the use of agricultural land, does not compete with human food and the cultivation process consumes the CO2noxious gas.
ALGAENERGY is responsibly paving the way towards making microalgal-based biofuels industrially profitable. The R&D projects assigned to this task include work on selection and genetic engineering of different microalgae to produce substantial lipid-carriers, some of them patented, as well as the establishment of a suitable and scalable production process.

The Biotechnology market is ever changing and on the leading edge of technology changes. New products are continuously under development and agitation and mixing is used throughout the process. A process may require any or a combination of the following: blending, solids handling including incorporation/dissolving/suspension, mass transfer, and solids and heat transfer. The scale for Biotechnology reactors and support units range from a few liters to several cubic meters and from small laboratory units to large scale fermenters. Biotechnology applications also require vendors who have strong R&D departments and laboratory facilities, polished and aseptic designs, easy drainability and cleanability designs, material validation, quality control programs specific to the project, and are able to meet governing specifications and directives such as FDA, USP, ASME-BPE, and cGMP requirements.
