Industrial scale-up of a novel and disruptive microalgae photobioreactor

Project description

Upgraded and cost-saving microalgae photobioreactor

Advanced cultivation technologies ensure sustainable biofuel production. The EU-funded BREVEL project aims to develop such a technology, significantly reducing cultivation costs for light-dependent microalgae. The landmark technology allows producers to tap into new markets in need of microalgae biomass and derived products. The patented product provides a cost reduction of as much as 90 %, allowing significantly higher yields from land compared to current outdoor state-of-the-art photobioreactors. A first pilot factory programmed to produce 400 tonnes of biomass annually will be constructed as part of the project.
