Abundant sun, warmth, and great dry planes near the sea, is ideal for the combination of algae with photovoltaic and thermal into a unique eco-system opportunity.

the new value of the desert 

The dawn of sustainable oil

Coastal regions like Northern Africa and the Middle East can become the leader in sustainable technologies.

Unused deserts are available and perfect to build the success story generating wealth for the post-fossil-focused world.

Algae grow biomass at a pace up to a hundred times faster than any other and use solar energy at a much higher efficiency than e.g. photovoltaic.

#Status quo

Global warming and oil dependency

  • inverting global warming is urgent

  • many governments enforce the change toward renewable energy

  • CO2 Emission certificates drive the price of fossil fuels

  • electrification is not always possible

  • industries like aviation have no real alternative yet.

  • oil prices are extremely high.

#Algae+PVT

  • build innovative solutions 

  • combine proven technologies

  • ensure transfer of bleeding-edge knowledge

  • reliable industry partner

  • multi facet benefits for local people and industry

  • tying CO2 to generate certificates

The solution

Innovative microalgae-photovoltaic-thermal combined eco-system using available technologies produces: 

  • vast amounts of algae oil for e.g. sustainable aviation fuel - SAF

  • desalinized water for irrigation and potable water

  • food for cattle or fish. 

  • abundant electric power

  • heat during the daytime 

  • cooling during the night.

A protective vegetation zone is created to protect plant and lab, using desalinised water and algae residues.

Multisolving

#Details

The microalgae technology

  • extensive floor-level system

  • monitoring by sensors and AI for optimal conditions

  • CO2 injection

  • temperature kept constant for maximum growth

  • night LEDs for degradation prevention

Spillover effects from:

  • fish/cattle food

  • solid fuel

  • fertilization

  • desalinated water

  • CO2 storage & certificate generation

Combining to maximize benefits

The PV area of the plant generates all electric energy needed for 

  • pumps, vents, filters

  • and other installations. 

  • storage for night operation

Solar thermal installation 

  • integrated with PV for temperatures up to 80°C

  • generating heat during the day

  • storing heat for e.g. industry

  • generating cooling during the night. 

  • storing cooling for e.g. buildings

A most pleasant oasis to live and work

  • cooled by the thermal plant

  • electrified by the PV

  • abundant botanics watered with water from algae plants. 

  • Cattle and fish feed from the algae

#Potential

Just a square of 30km side length can generate enough fuel to supply the aviation industry for a medium-sized industrial country. In addition to this, new cities are fully supported with power, water, cooling, and food through cattle and fish.

A sustainable future

The world's current oil production can be replaced sustainably by this type of eco-system plant and generate a pleasant living environment for many citizens in a current very harsh environment.

Higher revenues compared to the fossil oil industry through a combination of oil, electrical power, cooling, and heat. Derivative products from new cities, farms, and more create a new economic system.

Advanced sustainable technologies bring many advantages to the people, the innovators of the circular economy. The innovator, boosting into a renewable economy, creating a new source of wealth to the people and the economy. The many gains involved in this complete multi-solving approach will pay off easily.

Circular economy

Revenues and spin-offs

#How

We test the 

  • intercultural collaboration

  • geography

  • infrastructure

  • local resources

And build the design and strategy

What is possible and where are gaps w.r.t. natural resources, attracting people or industry, logistic challenges, legal permits, financing, or knowledge gaps to bridge.

Combining to maximize benefits

The learnings allow us to plan our actions most carefully and lean. We still focus on 

  • technology

  • workforce

  • supply chain

  • education

  • etc. 

With a  learning feedback loop, we accelerate the whole building process.

then scale!
