Growth Systems

Choice of commercial-scale cultivation systems 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 are all key considerations.

Broadly these options include closed photo bioreactors, open raceways and pond systems. Each of these systems offers capacity to rapidly grow bio cultures outdoors using sunlight, at significant scale and on a continuous basis, under optimally controlled conditions.

Initiation of scale up, with micro algae projects, is in bioreactors developed by MBD's R&D program. Scale up and production are then transformed to high growth ponds.

All macro algae projects use high growth open ponds for scale up and production.

Where possible, MBD Energy seeks to make use of existing site infrastructure in order to minimise construction costs.

Strain Selection

A core aspect of MBD Energy’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.
