CARBON CAPTURE AND UTILIZATION (CCU) WITH MICROALGAE
Many industrial facilities emit CO2. The Western world has many decentralized biogas and fermentation plants that emit relatively small quantities of CO2 compared to e.g. cement production plants. Huge power-to-X (P2X) projects require large quantities of CO2 but also space for installations and substantial funds.
No real CCU solutions exist today to address this challenge for small and mid-sized companies.
THE CC – CAPTURING CARBON EMISSIONS FROM INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES
ALGIECEL has developed a highly compact, modular plug & play microalgae PhotoBioReactor (PBR), fitted into standard 40´ shipping containers. The PBR will capture CO2 emissions and transform it, using LED light via photosynthesis, into microalgae biomass.
The only waste streams are oxygen and process heat which can be reused e.g. for heating up the manure at a biogas plant. The containers can be stacked on any flat surface and are highly scalable since the batch size remains constant per container, thus reducing the risk of contamination.
ALGIECEL´s primary target markets for the PBRs are the biogas and fermentation sectors. Here, ALGIECEL aspires to help in solving the CO2 challenge with our modular and scalable CCU tech. In Europe there are currently around 18,000 biogas plants, with numbers growing by above 5% annually.
A medium-sized Danish biogas plant will require 30 ALGIECEL PBRs, which will then solve its CO2 problem.
THE U – UTILIZING EMISSIONS TO PRODUCE HIGH-VALUE BIOMASS AND BIO-OIL
ALGIECEL´s container-fitted reactors enable the easy transformation of industrial CO2 emissions into algae-based derivative products.
The CO2-friendly and vegan microalgae biomass is rich in protein, omega-3, vitamin, and carotenoids. It can be split into a partially defatted biomass and bio-oil.
ALGIECEL´s primary target markets for the application of biomass and bio-oil are aquaculture feed and human food supplement.
In both markets ALGIECEL´s products substitute alternatives with higher environmental impacts such as fish oil or fishmeal.
The revenue from the derivative product sales is shared with the industrial client to facilitate a profitable removal of CO2. This enables ALGIECEL to offer carbon capture as a service.
