ALGIECEL Newsletter Q2 2022 – ALGIECEL opens carbon capture pilot plant at the Danish Technological Institute

Home » News » ALGIECEL Newsletter Q2 2022 – ALGIECEL opens carbon capture pilot plant at the Danish Technological Institute

Last week we celebrated the opening of the mobile ALGIECEL pilot plant at the Danish Technological Institute in Taastrup, Denmark.  

The day was dedicated to the green transition and sustainability. The opening was a great success with more than 70 participants celebrating ALGIECELs development of a mobile container-based photobioreactor with which photosynthesizing microalgae allow the conversion of COinto biomass.

CEO Juan Farré from the Danish Technological Institute stated that “the opening  marks the establishment by the Danish Technological Institute of an ecosystem giving start-up companies access to an integrated platform of testing and demonstration facilities within the space of future foods and the green transition”.

Earlier this year the BioInnovation Institute invested in ALGIECEL and during the opening ceremony Jens Nielsen, the CEO of BII, kindly remarked “I am impressed to see how rapid Algiecel has advanced and is now initiating experiments at pilot scale. But speed is unfortunately important as we rapidly need new technologies like the ones Algiecel is providing to make sure that we can create a sustainable society. I congratulate them with their advancements, and I will be looking much forward to follow them in the years to come”.

The ALGIECEL solution has been made mobile and can thus easily be installed at e.g. biogas or fermentation plants where CO2 emissions can be matched by a number of installed ALGIECEL photobioreactors.

Henrik Busch-Larsen, the founder and CEO of ALGIECEL said; ”The world is facing a green transition. We need to rethink how we produce those products we all take for granted in our everyday lives. CO2 emissions from industrial processes must be reduced, new technology and methods must be developed so that the green transition affects our industries and thus our society as softly, or should we say, as effectively as possible.
We at Algiecel have seen the need to deliver such technology, a technology which contributes to making the transition as easy and cost-effective as possible. Technology enabling that carbon capture can be delivered as a service”.

CEO Henrik Busch-Larsen will speak at Folkemødet (Peoples Meeting)

On Friday 17th June at 12:15, as part of the Danish Business Chambers Panel on Bio Solutions, Henrik Busch-Larsen and other actors within the BioSolutions space will discuss how BioSolutions hold the potential of becoming a major Danish export opportunity.
