We are both cultivation and downstream partners.
Over the last many years, we have built up laboratories and knowledge regarding testing, characterization, upscaling, and optimization of microalgal process for bioproducts. Our upscaling facilities cover microalgae production from single cell to continuous production in pilot scale photobioreactors and therefrom the biomass processing.This allows us to advise and help you with moving microalgae from the research scale to pilot production and harvest.
If your company is looking at the possibilities involved in establishing a microalgae production or products, DTI can help you! You can consult us regarding commercial algae production, bioremediation, downstream processing, and we have a variety of facilities available.
