Industrial processes have been fundamental to improving human quality of life, but a CO₂ buildup in the atmosphere says it’s time to rethink these processes.
Pacific AgriTec offers a superior process that economically and efficiently removes CO₂ from combustion flue gas using photosynthesis and growing microalgae. The system design can be retrofitted to existing combustion plants having limited available space or located in remote areas such as the California oil field operation shown on the right.

The Pacific AgriTec process grows microalgae using CO₂ from combustion flue gas instead of air. The process requires much smaller space than ponds, tubes and bags, uses small quantities of make-water and produces no gas emissions other than clean oxygen (O₂). The process is proven by years of testing.
Processing of microalgae from flue gas (NOTE: not to scale).
Artificial photosynthesis is used to grow microalgae in a photobioreactor (PBR). The PBR scientifically replicates key natural elements, packages them into a focused environment, and configures the system to operate using flue gas from combustion to lower associated carbon emissions. Pacific AgriTec offers a superior process that economically and efficiently removes up to 90% of CO₂ from combustion flue gases with 70% and higher as permanent capture. Make-up water needs are small.

Pacific AgriTec's technology is easily scaled and adaptive to any environment. Enclosed modular and durable design means Pacific AgriTec is not subject to seasonal weather disruptions, and carbon is utilized in the production of algae.
Not only is carbon removed, but a value added bio-commodity is produced, dried and packed on-site for shipping to the customer. A wide range of microalgae species can be grown and harvested. This is because optimum lighting, temperature, pH, and nutrients are used. The produced algae is isolated from contaminants. Our customers can expect a reliable, high-quality product.
Pacific AgriTec marries industrial source CO₂ to algae photosynthesis. A proprietary Pacific AgriTec process uses optimal amounts of CO₂, light, and nutrients to make high-grade marketable algae. Algae is a robust, fast growing, and adaptable organism that has a host of beneficial uses equal or superior to many other biological commodities and its commercial demand is growing rapidly.
