TREATING DIFFICULT WASTE
Specializing in industrial waste treatment, yAlgae uses natural microalgae to treat complex air and water pollution
yAlgae has developed a unique technology to treat various pollutants in a green and sustainable manner while keeping capital and operating costs at the lowest levels possible. Focused on treating gaseous and liquid waste streams within power plants, the yAlgae treatment process can also be used to effectively treat many other forms of pollution.
Current industrial environmental regulations favor processes incorporating Integrative Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC). While several systems are regarded by European and American directives as IPPC Best Available Technologies (BAT), none of these systems are capable handling various pollutants of both gaseous and aquatic effluent streams. Additional deterrents to the holistic nature of common BAT-IPPC are hazardous or uneconomical byproducts of some IPPC processes.
The yAlgae solution is an Integrative Pollution Prevention and Control (Bio-IPPC) system. This system can be incorporated into various industrial processes in a way that the byproduct is without hazardous potential and may be used as an economical raw material.

yAlgae, is tailoring biological treatments to various industrial pollutants based on knowhow developed by the Environmental Research Department of the Samaria and Jordan Rift R&D center. At the heart of these solutions is a microalgae reactor capable of treating various types of industrial pollutants both in the gaseous and aquatic phases. The algae reactor comprises of a tall and narrow greenhouse frame, while the algae growth is on sub-vertical fixed beds medium. Algal nourishment is done by thin-film circulation of the aquatic effluent and the greenhouse atmosphere is enriched by flue gases. Excess algal biomass is continuously harvested via an automated harvester, which crops the algae and accumulates it. The excess algal product may be utilized for several economic purposes starting with animal feedstock, through organic fertilizer and also as industrial raw material, in particular bio-fuels and the bio-plastics industry.

First module- I.E.C Ashkelon
This is our first device at I.E.C
We are using it to treat polluted water before pouring it into the sea.
