We develop scalable photobioreactors for different micro-organisms. Our Product line ranges from laboratory to commercial scale. By focusing on algae we were able to unlock the complex secrets of one of the most important and common organism on Earth. By using our technology we solved the primary challenges in effective algae cultivation.

  • Optimal introduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) and nutrients needed by the growing algae culture
  • Cost-effective and even light distribution within the algae culture

Our light distribution is the core technology of our algae photobioreactor. The system optimizes the quantity of light required for efficient algal photosynthesis. With low construction, energy and operational costs, the process mitigates CO2 emissions profitably and is able to produce algae growth rates consistently higher than those ever achieved before. The system is designed to be retrofitted to flue stacks with minimal impact on existing operations. Our systems are fully automated and computerized.

Why Algae?

Algae biomass, a next-generation biofuel feedstock, has many advantages over traditional biofuel crops:

  • Fastest growing plants on Earth.
  • They use photosynthesis to efficiently harness sunlight and carbon dioxide
  • It can double its weight several times a day.
  • Energy is stored inside the cell as lipids (the source for oil) and carbohydrates.
  • It can be grown on marginal land, so they do not compete with food crops.

Market

Green Bios Technologies product development activities are focused on multi-billion dollar markets including energy (fuels), industrial chemicals and specialty ingredients for cosmetic, nutritional and pharmaceutical markets.

Based on our patented technologies, Green Bios Technologies will provide photobioreactors for customers interested in its diverse potential applications, which include curbing air pollution, treating municipal waste, carbon sequestration, biofuels, growing feedstock, bioplastics, and pharmaceutical uses.

Possible Applications

CO2 Sequestration
In the past 50 years, the U.S. carbon dioxide emissions have almost doubled. Using algae for carbon dioxide sequestration is a win-win situation. Algae absorb carbon dioxide, therefore reducing emissions, and producing oil for biofuels.

Biofuels
As part of the photosynthesis process algae produce oil and can generate 15 times more oil per acre than corn or soy. The oil from algae can be converted into biodiesel, ethanol, biocrude, and jet fuel among others.

Water Treatment
Algae are already being used for municipal wastewater treatment. Algae help break down solids and use the ‘waste’ from the water as a nutrient or fertilizer to help it grow. It has proven to be more efficient and cost-effective than current wastewater treatments.

BioPlastics
Biodegradable plastics derived from algae biomass. The use of bioplastics is especially popular in disposable items such as shopping bags and packaging.

Pharmaceuticals
Some strains of algae are used as thickening agents, water-binding agents, and antioxidants in many types of make-up.

Food:
Uses of algae for food are endless. It has high protein content and high concentrations of mineral, trace elements, and vitamins. Algae are currently used as a thickening agent in some ice creams and a food supplement for animals.
