APS Continuous Harvesting Photo Bioreactor System

Technical Specifications Summary


This summary is designed to provide information regarding system costs and productivity data.

Definitions-Production

• Minimum Yield-These figures reflect public domain, verified values for base PBR technology
• Average Yield-These figures are based on Continuous Harvesting PBR Technology
• Optimized Yield-These figures are a blend of R & D research from a var luding Dr. Isaac
Berzin’s work while at MIT. It does include mechanical engineering design advances for the Continuous
Harvesting PBR system, natural selection improvements in lipid creation by algae(Dr. Berzin’s area of
study), and location specific evaluation advances. It UDES Gene Engineered species of algae.
Exclusions:

• Land Development costs-These are the responsibility of the customer to prepare the land for installation of
the PBR.
• Installation of Pylons or Stanchions-This is part of the land development costs borne by the customer.

One of the main advantages of the APS Continuous Harvesting P imination of the requirement for vast areas of
concrete needed by other PBR installations. With conventional PBR designs acres and acres of land must be covered with flat
concrete pads in order to provide a structural base for the system. Any slight shifts in this structural base can cause PBR stress
cracking or even complete system failure. The APS Continuous Harvesting PBR system has done away with this requirement,
substituting a system of Pylons or Stanchions. This innovation not only provides a structural base that is rock solid, but also by setting
the Pylon height at 9 feet or more it leaves the land beneath the APS system open to cultivation, grazing, wildlife refuge, or simply
open green space
