BDI receives Living Standards Award

Standards for algae products for the first time

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.
