Carniolus was founded in 2014. We design, engineer and construct microalgae production plants based on proprietary bioreactor designs.

We offer LED-powered bioreactors ( 400 & 1000 liters) for R&D purposes and sample production. Our medium and big scale bioreactors are solar powered and collect the sunlight using our patented Light Concentration Panels (LCPs). In addition, we offer a Parallel-Hybrid Bioreactor (1.000 liters) using a combination of our LCP system and LED- power to augment insufficient sunlight in challenging locations. Our big-scale bioreactors of 2m³ and 5 m³ are powered by LCPs only. These bioreactor-types can be combined for plant units of 200 m³ and bigger.

Our plants are equipped with an automatic plant control system enabling single-person plant operation.

Our bioreactor systems are extremely compact and provide the best ratio of plant footprint to algae productivity. A plant yielding approx. 40 tons of algae/ year would require an area of only 1.500 m² of land, incl. infrastructure and downstreamprocessing equipment.

Carniolus can supply a proprietary microfiltration-based algae harvester which operates fully automatic. We can supply a customized process-water recycling-plant which recycles > 95% of the process water, a massive advantage in arid areas.

Carniolus also specializes in poly-unsaturated lipid extraction using organic solvents. We supply colorless, and odor-free EPA and DHA for health food applications and we are developing “Augmented Function” products for end-users who want to simplify healthy nutrition by consuming multi-functional vegan Omega-3 products.
