Algae.Tec?s Australian Demonstration Plant Granted Approval

Algae.Tec’s Australian Demonstration Plant Granted Approval

October 18, 2011

Algae.Tec Limited has announced that its demonstration facility Shoalhaven One has been granted development approval under the Shoalhaven City Council Environment Planning and Assessment Act. The permit is effective immediately and is valid for the next three years, at which time an application can be made for an extension.

According to the Shoalhaven City Council, approval has been granted to Algae.Tec for an “Algae Demonstration Plant for the evaluation of algae production and processing for alternative fuel and CO2 sequestration.” The Algae.Tec enclosed modular technology captures carbon dioxide waste from power stations and manufacturing facilities, which feeds into the algae growth system.

Shoalhaven One will be sited next to the Manildra Group’s industrial facility, south of Sydney, in Australia. Manildra Group is the nation’s largest ethanol producer. “The Algae.Tec algae photo-reactors will take a carbon dioxide feed from the ethanol fermenters into the algae growth system,” said Algae.Tec Executive Chairman Roger Stroud.

The photo-bio reactors are currently being assembled at the company’s USA headquarters, the Algae Development & Manufacturing Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
