Schott AG and Algatechnologies Ltd. have signed an R&D agreement to strengthen their partnership following a successful one-year study at Algatech's algae production facility. Representatives from both companies will present their study results at the Algae Biomass Summit in San Diego, 29 September 29 to 2 October 2014.
"The success of thin-walled Duran tubing helped increase algae production efficiency on a small scale, and now will be replicated on a larger scale," said Raz Rashelbach, R&D manager at Algatech. "This is to support our strategy to double astaxanthin production capacity. The increase in sun exposure through the use of Duran tubing helps produce the purest AstaPure astaxanthin available in the market today."
Schott's thin-walled Duran glass tubes achieved a 10% boost in algae cultivation efficiency. Schott and Algatech's R&D agreement will expand their joint cooperation to optimise Algatech's production and optimise tubing design for the algae production industry. A dedicated section of Algatech's factory in the Arava Desert will serve as a beta site for advanced glass components developed by Schott for implementation in Photo Bioreactors.
Hagai Stadler, CEO of Algatech, said, "The partnership with Schott is an additional step towards achieving our objectives of optimising production efficiency, and widens our capabilities in the development of new microalgae-based products."
