Swedish Algae Factory is honored to receive the highly selective EU LIFE grant. The main objective of the LIFE SUNALGAE Project is to demonstrate a new, innovative algae material that can provide enhancements in the efficiency of silicon based and thin film solar panels.
This project is the first of its kind to extract and utilize the shell of an algae group called diatoms in larger scale in solar panel efficiency enhancing applications. SAFAB has refined the process of cultivation and extraction. The material is produced in an environmentally friendly process where water is cleaned, valuable nutrients are recycled, carbon dioxide is absorbed and a valuable sustainable organic biomass is also produced.
The aim of the project is to build up a larger factory for production of this innovative algae material where the cultivation also recycles nutrients from a land based fish farm. Material produced from the facility will tested for repeatable efficiency enhancement in solar panels.
