Marysville, OH (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Algaeventure Systems (AVS), the creator of HDD technology, was awarded Algaepreneur for its development of low energy separation technology to harvest, dewater and dry (HDD) microalgae. Often described as a barrier to algae's viability as a biofuel, the AVS HDD technology reduces the harvest and dewatering costs by over 90%. With each demonstration, consensus is built that the extraordinary breakthrough of HDD technology provides algae with a path toward commercialization.
AVS presented the HDD system to attendees at the National Algae Association (NAA) conference. Included in the presentation was a video illustrating the dewatering process, scanning electron microscope (SEM) illustrations of screen performance compared to high pressure filtering systems, and cost analysis of HDD processing comparative to current dewatering technologies.
Throughout the conference the merits of algae were discussed. The low capex and opex of the HDD systems enables the merits of algae to become realized.
Algaeventure Systems CEO, Ross Youngs shared, "We are grateful for the opportunity the NAA provides in bringing leaders and professionals from around the world to participate and contribute for the collaborative good of the industry. It is through collaboration that we will realize the benefits algae has to offer. We anticipate this is one of many breakthroughs that will be introduced at the NAA"
NAA members and conference attendees were encouraged to attend HDD demonstrations at Algaeventure Systems in Marysville, Ohio.
