Chlorella Vulgaris Production

Chlorella vulgaris is one of the most commonly cultivated algae in the world and is used in a wide variety of applications. Chlorella vulgaris is protein-rich, contains all essential amino acids, is high in chlorophyll, and has a lipid profile of 60% polyunsaturated fatty acids. This microalga is also rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, iron, potassium, phosphorus, and calcium. Chlorella vulgaris is spherical and immobile and has been widely used in biotechnology. Chlorella vulgaris is an easy-to-grow single-celled green microalgae ideal for photosynthesis studies, such as the popular algae experiments. Chlorella vulgaris can replace blood in a hemocytometer. Chlorella vulgaris requires an aquatic environment with adequate light, nutrients, and a constant flow of CO2 to grow. Larger production systems have lower yields and slower growth rates, which also result in relatively less carbon uptake during growth. CD BioSciences is developing a first-of-its-kind production process specifically tailored to the species of microalgae produced. Our production process is suitable for any microalgal species that converts light and carbon dioxide into biomass through photosynthesis.

AI-based Production

  • CD BioSciences is developing a first-of-its-kind production process specifically tailored to the species of microalgae produced. It involves real-time sensing, machine learning, and AI-based control to increase yield.
  • Our production process controls algal growth and minimizes the risk of contamination.
  • Our production process works with varying levels of carbon dioxide and can be adapted to any autotrophic microalgal species, i.e., any species of microalgae that grows through photosynthesis, converting light and carbon dioxide into biomass.

Application of Chlorella Vulgaris

Chlorella Vulgaris Production
  • Bioremediation
    Chlorella vulgaris has been the microalgae of choice for a variety of bioremediation processes. Because of its ability to remove various pollutants.
  • Bioenergy
    Chlorella vulgaris is regarded as a promising bioenergy source. It could be a good substitute for biofuel crops such as soybeans, corn, or rapeseed.
  • Food ingredient and dietary supplement
    Chlorella vulgaris is available as a dietary supplement, and it can be sold in capsules, extracts, tablets, or powders.
