Growing populations are emitting greater amounts of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere, contributing to global warming and climate change. Microalgae readily metabolizes CO2 as a food source; PureBiomass has developed the TriPAR System to enable large-scale production of microalgae across the globe and combat rising levels of CO2.
Microalgae cultivation is a form of aquaculture with great potential for the sustainable production of a diverse range of products; this includes nutraceuticals, vitamins, omega-3 oils, probiotics, pigments, amino acids, live feed for shellfish production, and supplementary proteins for fish, poultry, swine, and beef feed. We believe that PureBiomass technology has applicability across any and all markets that currently rely on algal cultivation. Microalgae has also been identified as an alternative biofuel feedstock that could one day meet global energy demands and provide a green alternative for wastewater treatment. PureBiomass strives to support this diverse range of markets with economic, societal and environmental relevance, all of which share one common necessity: a reliable and robust platform for the large-scale production of microalgae biomass at a minimal cost. We have specifically designed the PureBiomass systems to meet the needs of this rapidly evolving global bio-economy.
What Makes Us Sustainable?
GLOBAL FOOD SECURITY & HUNGER
Microalgae typically are a balanced mix of protein, lipid, and carbohydrates, which in addition to direct human consumption, make an excellent feed source for aquaculture and livestock. While current production rates do little to alleviate global hunger, there is very significant potential of algae to be produced at a scale that will have a major impact in all future global economies.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY & CLIMATE CHANGE
Our energy efficient TriPAR design offers improvements over existing technology by reducing water usage and increasing energy savings due to reduced water processing and elimination of a cooling requirement. Additionally, we know algae are efficient in sequestering CO2, so we designed the TriPAR system to run effectively on just atmospheric concentrations of CO2. Therefore, PureBiomass technologies have a positive impact on climate change, by assisting in the reduction of greenhouse gasses, which mitigate future climate change.
Algae are recognized as one of the most ideal feedstock’s for the production of biofuel due to their superior productivity and potential for high oil content compared to land based plants. Therefore, the development of the TriPAR system provides a platform for alternative and renewable energy by providing an optimized design for sustainable production of algal biomass, which could be utilized as a feedstock for bioenergy.
