Technology: ecoduna Innovations

OUR GLOBALLY-PATENTED TECHNOLOGY MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Our “hanging garden” technology is based on a unique combination of 

  • enlarging the surface area for photosynthesis,
  • providing microorganisms with light and nutrients without sacrificing efficiency,
  • a specific control software and sensor technology,
  • a closed production system, which saves resources and eliminates contamination,
  • hydrostatic biomass transport during the entire growth process for stress-free growth and
  • our biological and technical know-how of how to optimally control the growth of algae.

Only this combination makes an economical, continual production process possible 365 day a year.

TECHNOLOGY MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

ecoduna's technology provides optimal conditions for the cultivation of microorganisms, resulting in exceptional yields in a continual process. Compared with other biomass production systems, hanging gardens have the following advantages:


  • Closed cultivation system
    • minimizes water loss through evaporation
    • recycling and recirculation of used water
    • extremely small risk of contamination


  • Hydrostatic transport of biomass (fluid) allows for uniform flow throughout the entire maturation process without the use of pumps.
    • no residues
    • no contamination
    • minimised energy costs
    • stress-free conditions for cell division and photosynthesis (eliminates variations in flow speed associated with pumps)


  • Even distribution of nutrients and CO2
    • prevents saturation effects
    • excess oxygen can easily escape


  • Light management 
    • optimal light quantity
    • no shading, no light irritation
    • 100% photoactive volume

  • Constant sensing and monitoring with corresponding system controls
    • growth, temperature, nutrients, CO2 


  • Service, maintenance and cleaning without interrupting ongoing production
    • disconnect individual models from the chain of production
