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. 
HTB-1 is not genetically modified, and it excels with its tolerance of CO2, pH, temperature levels. 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.


Containment
HY-TEK Bio bioreactors are constructed of laminated Mylar with Kevlar/carbon fiber mesh to provide tanks that alleviated the immense cost of traditional containment.
HY-TEK Bio bioreactors provide customizable designs that will best fit any emitters’ CO2 reduction needs and available footprint. Bioreactors range in size from 6,800 to 75,000 liters.


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 pulsed photosynthesis protocol.


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 – a primary source of nutrient run-off – bodes well for its prospects. 

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 and achieving maximum mitigation. 

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

relief and greater public acceptance of traditional energy production.
