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.
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.
We have prepared another exciting topic. Dr. Christine Riedl, Senior Technical Sales Manager, will explain to us how to achieve a high level of performance with comparatively little effort and why the small details are the most important.
We are constantly developing further - not just ourselves, but especially the industrial plants we build. In this episode, Christian Rossmann, our head of electrical engineering is going to tell us more about this journey.
