Pilot facility

Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft des Saarlandes (HTWdS) is developing a pilot plant at a facility neighbouring the commercial Marine Fishfarm Völklingen. The plant uses an experimental  recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) constructed to a scale of 1:250. A RAS is a potential source of nutrients for the mass production of algae: nutrients are recovered from the system through the harvest of algae grown in photobioreactors (PBRs). The integration of PBRs is a step towards a smaller CO2 footprint for aquaculture and also a source of additional valuable products. In addition to its work at the pilot facility, HTWdS also provides a web-based portal which simplifies data exchange among EnAlgae pilot partners.
