Technology

The core of Solix’s intellectual property consists of its proprietary AGS technology, a scalable, cost-effective, and proven system for the production of algal biomass. AGS is an extended surface area culture system that incorporates Solix’s proprietary Lumian™ photobioreactor panels. The system consists of vertical panels suspended in a water basin.

The vertical orientation of Lumia panels increases the surface area illuminated by both direct and diffuse light while the water basin provides structural support and improved temperature control to optimize algal growth. Results from Solix’s successful deployment of AGS at its Coyote Gulch demonstration facility demonstrated that AGS can deliver:
