The NAABB was recently funded by the US Department of Energy, Office of Biomass Programs, to focus on the development of the algal biofuels industry.
One of the innovative technologies developed by NAABB researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory, with additional support from Solix BioSystems, is a small device with a big name: the ultrasonic algal biofuel harvester.
NAABB researchers are currently working on the final stage of the harvester technology: separating and purifying (fractionating) the released intracellular matter of the algae after lysis.
NAABB researchers anticipate using the harvester at the site of algae growth, enabling on-site harvesting of the valuable algal components and immediate recycling of reclaimed water.
