NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Utrecht, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands, 2010/10/20 - Evodos B.V., the developer and producer of ‘high concentration / no chemical’ centrifugal systems, announced that industry leader MBD Energy Limited has defined the Evodos algae harvesting centrifuges as key technology.

MBD Energy has purchased a first set of centrifuges. Anglo American, one of the world’s largest mining companies, is a cornerstone investor in MBD Energy.

The parties recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding on a multi-phase commercialization program under which Evodos will supply MBD Energy, an Australia-based company, with its Algae Harvesting systems. Larry Sirmans, Technical Director of MBD Energy, said: “We are excited by the ability of Evodos to harvest algae at low energy requirements and with a high concentration factor, without using any chemicals. We look forward to working with the Evodos team to forge a comprehensive commercial relationship with game-changing potential in the exciting third-generation biofuels space.”

Three of Australia’s largest coal fired power generators have committed to building test facilities adjacent to their power stations using MBD’s proprietary growth system, the Algae Synthesizer, where smoke-stack CO2 emissions are captured and used to grow oil-rich algae in solar bioreactors. This process effectively achieves BIO-CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage). In the full production systems, Evodos’s technology will be integrated into the MBD system to harvest the algae in a concentrated way and at low energy usage.

In the initial phase, Evodos will equip MBD Energy’s research and development facility at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia, where testing will take place. The two companies agreed that, subject to the success of the initial test phase, MBD will purchase significantly larger Evodos algae harvesting units to serve facilities planned for its three Algal Synthesizer power station projects in Australia: Tarong Energy (Queensland), Loy Yang A (Victoria) and Eraring Energy (New South Wales).

Marco Brocken, Evodos CEO said: “With our technology we are now able to accelerate our sustainability agenda by aiding in the process of reducing the global CO2 level. And with the rollout speed of MBD energy this will be a significant reduction. The algae harvesting volumes MBD energy requires, allow us to rapidly scale up our technology. This will lead to a harvesting price point that will pull out the plug from the algae industry. Many thanks go to MBD’s Larry Sirmans for his vision and persistence in making this partnership possible.”

Queensland Premier Anna Bligh officially opened MBD’s expanded R&D facility in November 2009. Premier Bligh said: “The revolutionary algal carbon capture and storage (BIO-CCS) technology is already proving successful in trials and will soon be rolled out at three coal fired power stations, including Tarong Power Station near Kingaroy. This technology has the potential to revolutionize carbon capture in Queensland and around the world.” She added: “As our state continues to grow and coal remains a key export, it is essential that we devise new ways to manage the impact of that growth on our environment.”

The Queensland Premier also announced that MBD would shortly commence construction of a one-hectare pilot plant at South Eastern Queensland’s Tarong Power Station. The trial aims to capture 700 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually and, if successful, could expand over the next 5 to 10 years to consume more than half of Tarong’s problem flue-gas emissions.

MBD’s Andrew Lawson said that each of the three current MBD power station projects has the potential to then grow to 80-hectare commercial plants, each capable of producing 11 million liters of oil for plastics and transport fuel, and 25,000 tonnes of drought‐proof animal feed annually. He said that the projects will eventually consume more than half of each of the power station’s problem flue-gas emissions.

With Evodos’s Algae Harvesting systems micro algae are harvested undamaged and as an almost completely dewatered paste. The energy balance of this harvesting process is positive. This paves the way for producing third generation biofuels at commercial scale. The Evodos Algae Harvesting systems are based upon Evodos proprietary Spiral Plate centrifugal technology.

About Evodos B.V.

Evodos (evodos.eu) brings to the market centrifugal systems based on their patented Spiral Plate Technology (SPT). With SPT solids can be separated in the form of a stackable cake or paste. Solids may take any shape and can be abrasive, soft and even greasy. The high separation sharpness leads to low energy requirements. In case of liquid liquid separation no interface level needs to be set.
Evodos positions it’s technology in high sustainability markets. Harvesting algae is such a focus point. For this market the Evodos Algae Harvester units are developed. The footprint of the machines is small, noice levels low and maintenance minimal.
