Algae.Tec delivers PBR to Reliance's Jamnagar oil refinery

By Ron Kotrba | May 05, 2015

Algae.Tec announced May 5 that is has shipped its first algae photobioreactor to Jamnagar province in India as part of its contract with Reliance Industries to build an 84-gallon-per-day pilot plant at the world’s largest oil refinery.  

The pilot plant is part of contractual arrangements that are fully funded by Reliance, Algae.Tec stated.

This first container houses the algae photobioreactor assembly that will take CO2 from the refinery and use it for algae production, which in turn will be used for the production of biofuel.

“This is a major milestone for the company, which leads to the establishment and commissioning of the pilot plant in an industrial location within the Reliance compound,” said Algae.Tec Managing Director Peter Hatfull.

In January, another algae company, Algenol, announced deployment of its algae production system at Reliance’s Jamnagar oil refinery.
