It is important and simply practical to have all needed knowledge and skills under one roof. That is why I went to the Technical Development Studio.
Together we construct small-scale photobioreactors for the cultivation of microalgae during student workshops.
For larger photobioreactors, I work together with commercial parties. Based on our knowledge, they set up a production line and in exchange we get free reactors and in the future we will get reactors at cost price. They do however, make adaption, for example by using different lamps but they will not tell us who the supplier is.
This is never an issue with the TD Studio. We really build the product together and knowledge is exchanged freely in order to be able to make the best product possible.
