Mid-scale Screening Capabilities Enables Cellana to Optimize Process Development
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.
