Ongoing research on the production of third generation biomass is trying to meet the challenges of renewable energy and for cutting GHG emissions (including CO2). To this end, SunOleo develops an innovative device of photobioreactor (PBR) for the production of biomass from the industrial culture of microalgae. The internationally patented concept has been specially devised for high volume production on less of soil surfaces, and entirely redesigned in order to lower investment and operating costs. The SunOleo’s concept disrupts the state of the art of closed PBRs, whose yield potential are revised upwards under our geographical latitudes.
