The cement platform structure with associated plumbing has been completed and is ready for the containerised bioreactor technology.

The company currently has two biofuels projects underway, with one in Australia and the other in Sri Lanka, for which project planning for the algae to biofuels facility at the Holcim cement plant is now complete.

The bioreactors are being fitted out at the Algae Development & Manufacturing Centre in Atlanta, Georgia, which has been expanded and upgraded to accommodate these commercial production programs.

The despatch of the bioreactors to Sri Lanka will commence by late May.

Both facilities offer algae carbon capture and storage (CCS) solutions.

Algae.Tec has a biofuels MOUs with the European airline Lufthansa, and a 50/50 equity joint venture with Chinese company the Kerui Group for roll-out in China.
