The commercial cultivation of microalgae is a rapidly growing industry worldwide. The main technical challenge nowadays is harvesting the microalgae, as centrifugation and classic filtration come with high cost. The University of Antwerp has developed a novel method to enable a more efficient harvesting, based on filtration combined with algae cake removal using a magnet brush. This allows for lower energy consumption, but safeguards high harvesting rates and minimal wear of the microalgae. A functional prototype has already been build, and we are now looking for device manufacturing companies, and companies working in the field of algae cultivation, to bring this method to the market.
