Redefining Low-Density Cultivation
The TriPAR™ is effectively redefining closed system photo-bioreactors, ensuring improved biomass productivity and process reliability through its ecologically aware design. The PureBiomass system raises algae growth rates by increasing light penetration into low-density culture. Low-density algae cultivation may seem counter-intuitive, but has proven to be extremely effective in boosting productivity rates. This approach, which relies on our proprietary Harvest Apparatus to remove settled biomass, guarantees a drastically reduced rate of water consumption. The TriPAR™ system also eliminates the usual requirement of close proximity to a carbon source, making the location of production facilities all the more flexible. Carbon present in the atmosphere can sufficiently support moderate yields in a low-density culture. Furthermore, because the TriPAR™ accommodates a greater volume of culture than its high-density counterparts, it has a much greater thermal mass, which eliminates the need for a cooling agent in most moderate climates.
The design innovations of the TriPAR™ system include: minimal or no requirement for carbon supplementation, reduced energy loads for heating and cooling, and significantly improved water conservation, all while maintaining culture purity and high productivity over a small areal footprint. We believe that the TriPAR™ can become the world’s most scalable photo-bioreactor system, and fully support robust aquaculture and biofuel industries.
