The production of Microalgae and Cyanobacteria offers diverse and lucrative application possibilities.

Well-established market participants, as well as new entrants, are fully aware that the production of Microalgae and Cyanobacteria represents a fast-emerging market. To meet this need, production capacities are to be built up step by step. To reduce investment risk and to take advantage of all market opportunities, the capability to cultivate different kinds of Microalgae and Cyanobacteria is also essential.

Subitec is able to take up this challenge with the standard preassembled Cultivation Module CM180. Based on Subitec’s proprietary Flat Panel Airlift (FPA) Photobioreactor technology, Subitec’s CM180 perfectly addresses flexible plant design needs. This also enables market participants to take advantage in scaling up microalgae and cyanobacteria production.

The systems are especially designed for production of high value ingredients for food supplements, pharmaceutical, animal feed, and cosmetics.

The encouraging trends towards sustainable productions, but also the increase of the global population, with the associated scarcity of available lands, are the main drivers for the increasing global use of microalgae and cyanobacteria.


Our systems cover the production process from the cultivation of microalgae and cyanobacteria through the desired product formation to the harvest.
