Peter Ripplinger of Subitec has Algae Bioreactors producing Net Energy from Biomass
Peter Ripplinger, CEO of Subitec, pitches the promising algae factory startup at ECO11 in Berlin. Subitec uses flat-panel airlift (FPA) photobioreactors to produce designable algae biomass on industrial scale with low consumption of resources. Peter claims that net energy production is only possible with their FPA bioreactors. Subitec is powered by patents developed at the Fraunhofer Institute and backed by the High-Tech Gründerfonds.
Here’s a short movie in German about Subitec, their bioreactor and its advantages for biomass energy production.
