European Algae Biomass Conference

Eu algae biomass
ACI’s 6th annual European Algae Biomass Conference taking place 20th & 21st April 2016 in Berlin, Germany will once again bring together senior executives from industry and academia to discuss the latest commercial and technical developments, challenges and research breakthroughs throughout the entire algae value chain.

 European Algae Biomass 2016 summit will be hosted at EUREF-Campus, which is currently undergoing installation of PBR plant for microalgae cultivation. The business and science park EUREF-Campus is a 55,000 square meter area located in the heart of Berlin. It is an inspiration and a symbol of the turnaround in the German energy policy. In this unique and intelligent location, a plant for microalgae cultivation is operating for the first time. Particularly unusual for this facility is its location on the campus. Installed on a highly exposed position the algae facility surrounds the facade of one of the office buildings on site. The individual units made of polymethylmethacrylate tubular reactors tolerate a rising flat helix allowing the integration of the building corners.

The existing exhaust gases from the heat and power plant at the location can be used as CO2 source and consequently support the facility supply. At the same time, it provides an improvement of the Ecological Footprint of the heat and power plant. The CO2 supply and the regulation of the algae facility is carried out by an intelligent and specially developed regulation concept, which has to take into account a variety of parameters to allow an effective operation. A façade awning installed above the facility supports shading the medium at high temperatures and is also automatically regulated by the controlling system.

The façade facility on the EUREF campus proves that the cultivation of microalgae in urban areas is possible and even provides an economic benefit. The constantly moving elements of the facility fascinate visually and contribute directly to sustainable concept of the location.
