Consistently high quality and maximum
yield in the production of microalgae

Microalgae are a sought-after resource for the production of food supplements, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and animal feed. However, overcoming the complex challenges of industrial production, especially in the pre-cultivation phase, requires know-how, experience and a perfectly tuned cultivation system. For this purpose, Subitec offers cost-efficient and turnkey microalgae production systems with cultivation modules optimally designed to meet the requirements: from pre-culture to industrial production, complete with cultivation infrastructure, which together successfully bridge the gap between economical production, maximum possible sterility in the process chain, higher biomass yields and consistently high product quality. At the heart of these modules are the patented flat-panel airlift photobioreactors that perform photosynthesis efficiently and gently.

Industrial Microalgae Production Systems - Subitec CM180 - 5.4 cubic metres cultivation volume

Industrial production: Efficient with turnkey solutions from Subitec

With the industrial production system, Subitec sets new standards in the production of microalgae on an industrial scale. It is a successful combination of stepless expandability and the efficient principle “one Cultivation-Infrastructure serves all CM180-Modules”. The core element is the CM180 module, which is characterized by its compactness: With a footprint of only 16 square meters, it has a cultivation volume of 5.4 cubic meters. Growlight LEDs provide uniform illumination over an area of 285 square meters and, together with internal cooling, self-circulation and efficient gas transfer, offer optimal growth conditions for microalgae. The precisely matched cultivation infrastructure networks the innovative systems with each other – from the CM180 module and nutrient preparation to cleaning, harvesting and automated control – and grows continuously with the requirements of the production system.

Pre-culture & laboratory systems: cornerstone for successful microalgae cultivation

When it comes to the initial phase of microalgae production, the pre-culture and laboratory systems from Subitec are indispensable. They provide the perfect basis to develop and pre-cultivate microalgae strains under optimal conditions. Our laboratory systems enable scientifically sound experiments that lead to deeper insights into specific algal strains. Thanks to their flexible adaptability, various parameters such as light intensity, temperature and CO2 supply can be precisely controlled.

Our pre-culture systems serve as a bridge between laboratory research and industrial production. They provide an environment that simulates microalgae growth on a larger scale, ensuring that transitions between different production phases are smooth. Manufactured to the same high standards as our CM180 modules, the pre-culture and laboratory systems from Subitec guarantee reliable results, efficiency and longevity.

Optimal microalgae production: Precise control, continuous output – contamination-free

For consistently fast growth and the highest quality in microalgae, the precise coordination of light, CO2 supply and temperature is essential, as is gentle treatment throughout the entire production process. The FPA-Photobioreactors from Subitec developed by the Fraunhofer Institute set standards here: With the patented FPA technology, they ensure homogeneous penetration of the culture and simultaneously maximise the surface area of the tiny air bubbles for optimal CO2 input. The use of airlift technology eliminates the need for mechanical pumps, preventing harmful shearing effects on the microalgae. Our double-sided LED grow lights offer maximum flexibility in choosing the light spectrum for each microalgae species, supported by efficient temperature control. This intelligent system ensures not only an efficient photosynthesis process, but also predictable production volumes and maximum output per volume. Thanks to the closed structure, high and stable product quality is ensured while contamination is prevented.
