Strain Selection

A core aspect of MBD Industries's capacity to biologically remediate a wide variety of waste streams is our ability to provide a match between the waste contamination type and the biological organisms best suited to help. Options include particular forms of macro algae and micro algae.

Beginning with field samples collected in the vicinity of a host emitter, MBD can select the most useful and fastest growing strain and have it in production within about 12 months. Locally occurring strains are used in order to provide biosecurity in the event of a system breach and to ensure compatibility with local growing conditions.

Following careful investigation a determination is made about which organisms most efficiently remove the target waste stream contaminants and offer the most likely commercial value as harvested biomass.

Final selection is based on careful study of relative growth performance, evaluation of optimum yield and actual commercial markets potential. Once final strain selection is determined, scale-up culturing can begin.


Wastewater Treatment

Many industrial processes consume large amounts of clean water and consequently produce similarly large amounts of contaminated wastewater. Businesses that release contaminated...

Growth Systems

Choice of commercial-scale cultivation system is determined by evaluation of waste stream types and locally occurring algae strains, harvesting potential and the best available commercial options for the on-going production of algal biomass.
