Low Cost Photo Bioreactor System

This technology is a photobioreactor for the cultivation of microalgae.

The photobioreactor is fully automated, low power and very low cost to manufacturer. The automated monitoring of the Green Cell Biotech photobioreactors gives the operator better control over biocultural conditions, such as pH, light intensity, CO2 and temperature. The Green Cell Biotech photobioreactor produces algae for different applications: 1)High grade algae is used in nutraceuticals, natural supplements or as biofuel, 2) Lower grade algae is used as animal feed and fertilizer, and 3) then the algae rich water containing traces of algae is used for the bioremediation of soils.
