BioProcess Algae Harvest in Shenandoah - VIDEO

Posted by Sasha Forsen on Thu, Apr 04, 2013 @ 04:51 PM

Check out our Grower Harvester™ technology in action! 

This video gives a whole new meaning to agriculture in the midwest. Watch as algae is being harvested from our Grower Harvester™ platform co-located with Green Plains in Shenandoah, Iowa. 


  • High density harvest can be seen in our Grower Harvester™ basin as the algae biofilm is dislodged from our proprietary high surface area attach growth substrate. This density will continue to concentrate as the algae is sprayed into basin.
  • High protein, omega-3 rich biomass is dewatered through on-site filtration and centrifugation.
  • Dewatered pastes are currently dried with high capacity on-site drying capabilities. 
  • Dried powders are then ready for shipment to downstream partners for a variety of markets.
