ecoduna selected SCHOTT after a successful 18-month test of DURAN® glass tubes in ecoduna’s first vertical PBR plant. When the time came to build the new facility, ecoduna turned to SCHOTT to deliver several hundred thousand units that can hold more than 780,000 liters of photoactive volume. In all, the facility will produce 100 tons of algae annually.

eparella, a subsidiary of ecoduna (ecoduna.com), will operate the sustainable 2.5-acre plant. It is scheduled to be built this year using 143 miles of glass tubing, enough to nearly stretch across Austria. Production will start in 2018.
In vertical PBRs, algae are grown in transparent tubes filled with water and nutrients to fuel photosynthesis. ecoduna produces and harvests different algae such as chlorella or spirulina for use as food supplements, cosmetics ingredients, animal food and feed, biofuel, fertilizer, and even as pharmaceutical components. The market volume of algae production has already exceeded $1 billion and continues to grow.

Omega-3 fatty acids are one driver of that growth. They’re considered important for brain health, but they cannot be produced by the human body. They must be found in food, but the most common sources, such as oily fishes like salmon, mackerel, and tuna, are prone to overfishing. By growing omega-3 fatty acids in algae, ecoduna helps take pressure off of fish populations and provides a cost-efficient source of this crucial nutrient.

As manufacturers of PBRs hone the technology, they increasingly convert their facilities from plastic to glass. Glass’s cleanability, strength, and clarity improve output and lower costs. Companies expect to replace plastic tubes and panels every few years, while glass can last longer than five decades. In the long run, glass tubing is more cost effective.

“The transition from plastic to glass was an important step for our company,” says Silvia Fluch, Chief Operating Officer, ecoduna. “The use of recyclable glass in our manufacturing plant perfectly fits our idea of being sustainable and protecting our environment and nature.”
