Given light, water, nutrient and CO2, the algal culture will grow by consuming the CO2 in flue gas and nutrients in the culture until it reaches an optical density (OD) where the light can no longer penetrate the core of the Bioreactor. At this point, the system’s Automation Control opens the drain valve in the Bioreactor and 10% of the Bioreactor flows by gravity into a Settling Tank where a bio-coagulant / flocculent is used to separate the algae from the water in the culture. Excess water is drained off, filtered and recycled to the Bioreactor with nutrients and makeup water added. The algal slurry in the Settling Tank is then pumped through a spray dryer, converted to powder, vacuum packed and stored for shipping. This operation cycles every 90 minutes, mitigates the Greenhouse Gas emissions 24/7 and produces 50-75 lbs of algae and 17,000 cubic feet of oxygen per day for sale from one Bioreactor.
Breakthrough technology for mitigation of CO2 and other Greenhouse Gas emissions using an optimized indigenous strain of algae and a patent-pending photo bioreactor system design. Validated with over 12,000 hours of operating experience backed by credible third party. Innovative LED lighting enhances algal growth, reduces power consumption and increases CO2 mitigation/volume of culture. Flexible design allows application as a carbon capture recovery solution for corresponding multi-pollutant quality control systems. Modular and scalable design speeds implementation and works with any generating capacity - from small landfills to large power plants. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of patent-pending Algae-based GHG Mitigation System. Ability to harvest algae and capture oxygen as marketable off-take products provides a positive cash flow to pay back initial investment, cover ongoing O&M and still produce considerable profit for HY-TEK Bio and its investors. Early Adopters will have their operating cost covered, reducing the need for an increased O&M Budget No added risk or O&M cost for chemical purchase, or hazardous byproducts Our project is designed to repay the investment in seven to ten years 100% mitigation of CO2, NOx and SOx (not usually present in methane fired equipment) exceeds the 2015 EPA requirements. Public Acceptance by adding HY-TEK Bio green technology.
