22.01.2019 White Paper on Biofilm Formation and Cleaning

The ongoing interest in our first two white papers has motivated us to provide further insights into our R&D activities and findings.

The third issue now deals with biofilm formation in photobioreactors and their removal.

07.12.2017 Subitec joins as an SME the EU research project ABACUS

The ABACUS research project (Algae for a Biomass Applied to the produCtion of added valUe compoundS) aims at a business-oriented and technology-driven development of a new algal biorefinery, thereby bringing to the market innovative algae-based ingredients for high-end applications, spanning from algal terpenes for fragrances to long-chain terpenoids (carotenoids) used as nutraceuticals and cosmetic actives.Subitec's function in this EU research project - which involves eight other partners from industry, SME and research - is on one hand to scale the microalgae biomass from a small laboratory scale to pilot testing in the field and on the other to develop and optimize the process for the microalgae cultivation in photobioreactors.

15.09.2017 Subitec Whitepaper On Artificial Lighting

The excellent feedback we received for our first Whitepaper on PBR operating strategies, shows that there is a lot of interrest for further information sharing about our R&D insights and activies. 

This second short-comminication deals with the artificial lighting of high-density Flat Panel Airlift Photobioreactors and will hopefully continue the exchange of experiences in R&D.

04.05.2017 Subitec FPA 6 Liter Automatic Cultivation System

Subitec is determined to find customized solutions for user requirements to make the advantages of microalgae biotechnology available to the industry and research institutes worldwide. The necessity for a flexible cultivation process for laboratories leads us to the development of a fully automatic FPA-reactor. Here we offer our customers a cultivation equipment e.g. to have safe starter cultures with reproducible results or to cultivate over days with being independent from harvesting and feeding the cultures.

16.03.2017 Subitec Whitepaper On Operating Strategies

This short communication on operating strategies is the first that Subitec puts out in this format to share findings and give an opportunity to dive deeper into our R&D activities and gain insights and ideas.

There will be more similar communications in the future for different topics to drive more progress in microalgae R&D.
