Mid-scale Screening Capabilities Enables Cellana to Optimize Process Development

250x250-md-scale-screening

For any outdoor microalgae cultivation operation, both experimentation and large-scale cultivation are essential for the successful production of biomass, oil, feed-protein and other valuable co-products.

In order to economically maximize yield at a large scale, the capacity to experiment at smaller volumes is essential.  Cellana’s patented ALDUO mid-scale technology simulates large scale production (up to 750,000L), but with greater experimental flexibility at significantly lower cost.

A variety of strains may be grown simultaneously using a triplicate, randomized-design methodology under outdoor conditions. This allows Cellana staff to screen multiple strains for targeted performance characteristics, and to undertake a preliminary techno-economic analysis prior to scale-up.
