BDI BIOLIFE SCIENCE
How a superfood is derived from algae
Located south of Graz, the company BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH has shifted its focus from biodiesel to valuable substances produced by algae. A plant that manufactures astaxanthin is being constructed in the Hartberg area. Astaxanthin is used as a dietary supplement and vegan dye.
AutomationX was commissioned to supply and install the system to produce this manufacturing plant. In addition to automation tasks, it is necessary to visualize the entire material stream since the products are used for consumer goods in the nutrition industry.
