Algae Enterprises – Algae System
Advanced Algae Bioremediation System
Algae Enterprises, together with Sustainability Ventures, has technologies applicable to the treatment and re-use of effluent from municipal, industrial and agricultural sources. Algae Enterprises has experience partnering with leading companies to adapt these technologies to help them improve sustainability and develop new revenue streams.
The Algae Enterprises Algae Wastewater Treatment Plant (AWWTP) utilizes sunlight and local algae species to remove nutrients and other contaminants from wastewater while generating large quantities of electricity. Electricity generation is achieved through anaerobic co-digestion of harvested algae biomass and upstream wastewater streams to produce methane-rich biogas which can be supplied to a generator.
Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.
General Support & Other:
- Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
- Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
- This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.
Algae Enterprises has been unresponsive to Newtrient's multiple attempts to supplement or validate the information about this technology. This technology has not been evaluated using Newtrient's 9-point scoring process because it is Newtrient's understanding that this technology is still under development and is not yet commercially available. This is an Australian company not focused on US markets.
