MANUFACTURING PROCESS

The Process consists on the scale-up of microalgae. Cells are collected from Nature (endemic species) or may be purchased to certified Laboratories. Each step requires inoculation of the microalgae in a bigger water volume, until the last stage: photo bioreactors (PBR) inoculation.

PBR’s consist of a deposit connected via collectors to a zone of transparent acrylic tubes where the microalga does photosynthesis. This allows the deposit to function as the mixing zone of the culture that circulates in the PBR’s tubes, as a reception point of nutrients, treated water and recirculated water, as a carbonation point (injection of pure CO2) and degassing (gaseous effluent liberation after O2 production and uptake of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and sulfate), as a thermoregulation zone through a spiral heat exchanger and a zone of online monitoring of various parameters like temperature, pH, conductivity and concentration level. Microalgae grow in a medium containing a mixture of nutrients.

When the concentration of cells reaches a peek in the PBRs, the culture is collected and the water is separated from the biomass through a cross-flow ultrafiltration process. The harvest is done in a continuous mode.

The water used in the unit comes from a water hole, passes through a pre-filtration system and is stored in two tanks with the total volume of 500m3. From this point, the water is directed to the treatment system that involves microfiltration, chlorination, filtration by activated carbon and another microfiltration stage.

After treatment, the water may be forwarded to the tanks of water that are used for cleaning the PBR’s inside, to the recirculated water tanks, to the effluent treatments tanks, for filling the production systems (PBR’s), and part for a new filtration stage at 0,2 μm. This water that passes through the new filtration stage feeds the circuit of the inoculation system, the nutrient preparation system and the laboratory where the inoculum is prepared.

The microalgae culture is harvested from the production units (PBRs), and is sent through gravity to a small tank located at a lower level. Hence the culture is pumped to three storage tanks and then concentrated in a tangential filtration system of polymer membranes. The water removed in this process, free of biomass, is recirculated and fed back to PBR’s. Subsequently, the concentrated biomass is sent to the drying system – first, it is collected in a tank to be fed to a spray-dryer and in the dryer, it is atomized into fine droplets to a chamber where circulates hot air, which enters the dryer at about 250oC, leaving wet at about 90oC. After the dryer, the air passes through a cyclone to remove particles. After the drying step, the biomass powder is collected, packaged and stored.
