After 7 years of research, Algatek has developed and patented a new type of bioreactor, the Algatek Algae Accelerator (AAA), to be operated in indoor production facilities to shield the algae from certain sun spectrums that are detrimental to the algae growth factor. The sunlight has been substituted by LED light, which allows a production cycle between 22 to 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. There are more than 450 Waste-to-Energy plants throughout Europe, which have been built to convert industrial and municipal waste into valuable energy that can be resold into the electricity grid. Some of the inherent problems with most Waste-to-Energy techniques have been the emissions to the atmosphere and the varied energy levels in the waste.

Algatek's M.O is creating a sustainable, green method of rapidly growing algae to be able to use its unique properties in a multitude of ways to create a better, cleaner, sustainable future.
The (AAA) and its embedded proprietary software controls the optimal mix of algae growth parameters, which ensures a consistent high quality and output level.
The (AAA) will operate with a biomass output, higher than the existing algae production technologies presently producing algae biomass.
