HY-TEK Bio’s solutions provide an effective mitigation strategy, regulatory

relief and greater public acceptance of industrial pollution mitigation.

TECHNOLOGIES

Algae
Researchers at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Institute for Marine and Environmental Technologies (UMCES/IMET) are world renowned for their expertise in isolating algae down to its DNA. Using a Maryland Industrial Partnerships grant, researchers isolated the best strain of algae to work with HY-TEK Bio’s technology, and to fine- tune the algae and technology to work together at optimally.

 
HY-TEK Bio's unique algal strain (HTB-1) is not genetically modified, and it excels with its tolerance of CO2, pH, and temperature. It also grows at a rapid rate.  HTB-1 provides the basic components for an enormous variety of marketable products, including lipid oil, lutein/zeanxanthin, carbohydrates and proteins; with its oil a direct replacement for palm oil.


Containment
HY-TEK Bio bioreactors are constructed of laminated Mylar and Kevlar to provide bioreactor tanks that alleviated the immense cost of traditional containment.


HY-TEK Bio bioreactors provide the best optimized fit for any emitters’ CO2 reduction needs and available footprint.


LED Lights
We've determined, through years of research, how to maximize algal growth and maximize energy efficiency through proprietary grow lights that feature a unique technology developed by our Founder Robert Mroz that uses a patent-pending process called pulsed photosynthesis.


Nutrient
Optimizing algae growth isn’t complete without the right nutrients, but when nutrient cost is prohibitive the process can becomes unsustainable. HY-TEK Bio has deeply researched the use of chicken manure - loaded with nitrates, phosphates and multiple micro-nutrients – which are the main requirements for algal growth. An almost unlimited supply of chicken manure is available worldwide which HY-TEK Bio has developed a process to convert into a clear, odorless liquid saturated with Nitrogen and Phosphorus as liquid nutrient.

Gas Injection
Research and testing on bubble rise velocity and dissolution effects have led HY-TEK Bio to the optimal method for injecting gas into an algal culture to achieve optimum transfer of flue gas chemistry into the algal culture. This means maximum mitigation per Liter of algae.
