Algae Processing and Products Facility
About our Facility
The Algae Processing and Products Facility (APP) was developed to promote ongoing research on algae processing and utilization to produce bioproducts, as well as other bioproduct based research. This uniquely designed facility is located on the Innovation Campus of Utah State University and has been set up to offer multiple utilities to five outdoor stations for pilot and full scale testing. The site also houses a greenhouse outfitted with growth systems situated for algae testing and evaluation. The facility includes several indoor work areas that can be isolated for specific research projects as well as a small conference room, break room, and lab area for sample analysis. Currently in operation are eight lab bench-scale raceways, four pilot scale raceways, and one large pilot scale raceway. The facility has been setup to promote a variety of different research projects and the ease of access to utilities and the facility enables a wide array of research scale-up possibilities.
