The Styrian plant manufacturer BDI-BioEnergy International has specialized in the development of resource-saving technologies. The idea of using algae in the industry is increasingly occupying the branch. The problem is that the use of algae in industry requires the constant production of high-quality raw materials from algae regardless of location.
BDI has now succeeded in developing its own algae cultivation system that guarantees precisely these conditions. To ensure that this process can be applied internationally, the Raaba-Grambach-based company is currently working at European level on those standards that will in future ensure quality control for the customer with regard to the purity or concentration of the algae oil.
Austrian Standards has awarded BDI-BioEnergy the Living Standards Award for its participation in the development of standards for the uniform use of algae in industry.
BDI-BioEnergy International, which has so far been particularly renowned for the development and construction of BioDiesel plants, is now, together with its 100% subsidiary BDI-BioLife Science GmbH, taking the first step towards implementing an algae technology developed in-house.
BDI – BioEnergy International AG (the “Company”) announces that it was notified by the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (“FSE”) today that, upon application of the Company of December 7, 2016, the admission of its shares (ISIN: AT0000A02177) to trading on the regulated market of the FSE was revoked (“Delisting”). The delisting will become effective upon the end of December 22, 2016. The Company expects that it will not be possible to trade its shares over a stock exchange after this point in time.
Together with Prof. Glatzel from the Institute of Neuropathology at the University in Hamburg-Eppendorf, BDI was involved in a publication in the well-known specialist journal European Journal of Lipid Science & Technology on "The influence of methanol on prion reduction in oleochemical processes at high temperature and pressure".
Biodiesel Magazine is dedicated to the topic of pretreatment and how technology providers are adapting and expanding their pretreatment offerings to become more specialized in the processing of wastebased feedstock.
Within the All-Gas Project of Europe’s 7th framework programme for research and technological development, BDI-BioEnergy International demonstrates algae oil extraction, characterization and conversion to biodiesel using its RepCat process.
The All-Gas project is co-financed by the European Commission within its Seventh Framework Programme to demonstrate the large scale use of algae for waste water purification and the subsequent use of the produced algae biomass for production of biofuels and biogas.
