Phytolutions – More than Fuels

Inspired by the natural processes in the Earth’s oceans, Phytolutions applies marine algae in land-based systems. The combination of sea biology and innovative process technology has resulted in system solutions. With the environmentally-friendly recycling of COc to produce energy sources, fuels, foodstuffs (oils, proteins, etc.) and platform chemicals, Phytolutions has opened up a diversity marine algae and is supporting sustainable industrial production. Phytolutions offers tailor-made approaches for the reduction of COc. The linkage of existing waste streams from industrial plants (such as flue gas and wastewater for example), biogas plants or ship operating systems help to increase efficiency and lead to additional yields. Phytolutions operates large-scale photo-bioreactor and harvesting systems which produce scale of tons of micro-algae. The realisation of waste heat concepts at industrial sites implies that, even in northern Europe, algae production is possible all year round without recourse to agricultural land. Phytolutions also markets high-quality algae products such as feed for aquacultures, food and nutritions supplements and medical extracts derived from micro- and macro-algae for use in medical diagnostics. Our comprehensive expertise as a research service provider for important marine algae application complete the service portfolio of services. Close cooperation with Jacobs University Bremen ensures constant access to the latest scientific developments. The company is a member of the EABA – European Algae Biomass Association – the Aviation Initiative for Renewable Energy in Germany (AIREG) and the Bundesverband Aquakultur.

“More than fuels”: the Phytolutions approach.
