Scottish Bioenergy spinout Codiscovery (Dublin Ireland) has formed a collaborative research and development relationship with University College Dublin and The National University of ireland at Galway. Through this agreement the company will accelerate food standards agency approval for a number of high value biochemicals for the food and feed industries.
David Van Alstyne in conjuncton with Dr Gary Calwell and Chelsea Brain of Newcastle University has filed a new patent family relating to the micro-evolution of microbes without the use of genetic modification. `The species have proven increased high value biochemical production and higher efficiency at absorbing heavy metals in wastewaters.
Scottish Bioenergy has spun-out an Irish based company, in collaboration with a global facilities management company and two leading Irish Universities to scale up operations in the aquaculture market.
Scottish Bioenergy is a five year old company that designs, installs and operates algal photobioreactor systems for carbon capture, wastewater treatment and biochemical production. We are also involved in bioprospecting activities, isolating commercially useful algal and cyanobacterial strains and using natural manipulation techniques to ensure they are suitable for use in a variety of bespoke applications.
We filed our first patent in 2007 and have an IP pipeline established with leading Irish and UK Universities, where we fund research and development within the algal biotechnology field. Our academic collaborations and affiliations are invaluable to the company’s collective knowledge and development of new progressive technology through innovation.
We have completed a 4 year pilot study of a large-scale reactor system and can now manufacture 10,000 25 litre reactors per month and will be expanding. Our reactors survived minus 12 °C temperatures, 50 knot winds and technical and biological mistakes too numerous to mention!
The systems we provide work particularly well in conjunction with biogas systems and we have the ability to produce a range of high quality biochemical products including proteins, PUFAs (Omega 3), pigments and enzymes, tailored to specific needs and at a competitive cost.
If you’re interested in our systems and what we have to offer you then please get in touch.
