Developing algae-based wastewater treatment systems to turn algae biomass into bio crude oil
Swedish Algae Factory is a Gothenburg start-up that is developing algae-based wastewater treatment systems with the goal to process algae biomass into bio crude oil.
Their solution is based on a new strain of algae growing in the polar ice. The algae has a high lipid content making it usable for fuel production. It grows well in low temperature and low light conditions, which enables Nordic countries to produce algae biomass at a large scale all year around.
By using this algae, algae biomass production can be achieved in a much more energy efficient way since it does not need warming and artificial light during winter season.
