1 Microalgae facilities for production of bio-product at AgroTech - from laboratory to semi-commercial scale : Morten Storgaard Business Manager

2 Welcome to AgroTech Research-based consultancy and technological services Approved Technology Institute (GTS) for agri-technology and food innovation Headquarters in Agro Food Park - a knowledge cluster in the food- and agricultural industry Department at the University of Copenhagen s campus in Taastrup

3 AgroTech accelerate business AgroTech transforms science into business through knowledge-based consultancy, technological services and innovation within the fields of: /Environment /Plants /Food

4 What is a GTS-institute? 9 different institutes in the GTS system Private and non-profit Approved by the minister of science, technology and higher education Independent, research-based consultancy and technology transfer Focus on small and mediumsized companies

5 Business Units Plant Technology Field Trials Food & Foodservice Environmental Technology GreenHouse Technology

6 Plant technology Biotechnology Plant breeding and innovation

7 Greenhouse technology Climate management Green living environments

8 Software development, monitoring and statistics WEB programming Interaction- and interface design Development and support of IT systems Online monitoring and Big Data Mathematical modeling and statistics Data into knowledge!

9 Testing and laboratory facilities Microalgae lab Foodture lab Test centre, green living environment Crop test Crop quality lab Environmental technology lab Bio lab Biotech service lab Plant pathology lab

10 AgroTech s microalgae activities Controlled conditions

11 AgroTech s focus AgroTech s focus is on microalgae based production of high-value bio products e.g. feed for fish breeding, human consumption or extractable ingredients Organisms Arthrospira platensis test and customer specific tasks Synechocuccus - project high-value terpenoids Rhodomonas salina project - copepod feed Nannochloropsis, Haematococcus, other future

12 AgroTech cover the span from research to semi-commercial production Up-scaling of microalgae production Single cell -> petri dish -> 1 L -> 30 L -> 500 L Batch production in climate boxes (1-30 L) test of media etc. 500 L Demo-PBR for contineous, semi-commercial production Calculation of yield and economy Future - harvesting and measurement of yield (biomass, content etc.)
