Putting proven technology to new “green” uses 

Many experts view biofuel based on algae as a viable alternative to fossil fuels – although attempts to turn idea into reality are relatively new. But Alfa Laval has delivered equipment for macro- and microalgae for decades. We offer a number of proven solutions and can help you address some of the challenges you meet in producing biofuels from algae. Alfa Laval also provide solutions for producing algae-based products for pharmaceuticals, nutrition products and more.

Let us help you with your pilot project

Alfa Laval is currently involved in numerous pilot projects around the world – so we’re well equipped to help you with yours. One example is a Utah State University project tasked with developing and demonstrating low-cost, large-scale, commercially viable technologies to produce fuel from algae.

Another involves producing high-performance algae-based products for use in the pharmaceutical, nutrition, aquaculture, animal feed and fuels market.

Algae separation: how it all comes together

The chart shows various roles Alfa Laval equipment can play at different process stages after algae has been pumped from an open pond, photobioreactor or fermenter

Selection of equipment depends on capacity required and product characteristics such as viscosity, solids content, pH value in the fermentation broth and limpidity.
