PARTICULA GROUP

CREATING LONG TERM VALUE

About us

Particula Group is a research and technology company dedicated to the development of circular bioeconomy solutions. The company specializes in the integration of sustainable technological innovations into the business models and manufacturing process with the goal to develop high-end products with a positive environmental impact.

Our key sustainability focus areas are sustainable biomass cultivation process, state-of-the-art proprietary technology, and cutting-edge circular bio-based products. In Particula Group we are highly skilled in processing a wide range of natural microorganisms with an accent on micro-algae and cyanobacteria.

Particula Group is a member of the NetWorld2020 European Technology Platform.

TECHNOLOGY

Particula Group develops microalgae and bacteria biotechnology processes by operating 3rd generation biorefinery for the production of food, feed, and biochemicals.

The company uses advanced technology for the cultivation of photosynthetic microorganisms and CO2 capture as well as Nitrogen-fixing technology in order to reduce production costs of fertilizers and biostimulants by cyanobacteria.

We cooperate with the top global research and industry organizations along the circular bioeconomy value chain with the goal to develop environmentally responsible solutions.

MICROALGAE CULTIVATION

ORGANIC CERTIFIED BIOMASS PRODUCTION

We operate several techniques in our site under a semi-batch continuous model in an open and closed process on our microalgae pilot facility. Our self-developed photobioreactors (PBRs) consume up to five times less energy than other PBRs and result in significantly lower production costs. The technology is operated remotely from our laboratory using IoT based monitoring and control system

Fields of application:

  • Algae-based bioplastics and biofertilizers
  • Algae-based CO2 capture
  • Algae-based wastewater treatment
  • Algae-based food & feed

NITROGEN-FIXING BACTERIA

Our work also includes non-symbiotic and symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Nitrogen fixation is a chemical process by which atmospheric nitrogen in the air is converted into ammonia. Nitrogen fixation is essential to life because fixed inorganic nitrogen compounds are required for the biosynthesis of all nitrogen-containing organic compounds, such as amino acids and proteins. It is also, indirectly, relevant to the manufacture of all nitrogen chemical compounds.

Field of application:

  • Biostimulants and seed coatings
  • Sustainable textiles colorants
  • Anaerobic digestion

PRODUCTS

 Production of sustainable products via biorefinery technology from microalgae and other aquatic biomass.

FOOD GRADE MICROALGAE

Our food grade Haematococcus Pluvilais and Chlorella Vulgaris are grown via state-of-the-art closed system greenhouse technology resulting in low production costs. Our technology is based on low cost airlift continous system and production of fresh algae biomass and pastes. The biomass is used in cosmetics industry as bioactive compound and in food industry as plant based food supplement.

NON-FOOD GRADE MICROALGAE

Our Chlorella Vulgais and Scenedesmus Dimorphus algae cultivated in waste water are used in different sectors;  bio-plastics fillers and resins, bio-fertilizers and soil amendments. Additional research is being being done in CO2 sequestration and waste water treatment. Use of waste water for algae growth significantly lowers capital and operational costs and therefore results in low biomass price which is competitive to fossil based products.

It's Day 1 of the General Assembly meeting! The #Bionanopolys team is discussing the progress on the development of #bionanomaterials with all 27 partners - online again! We will praise the day where we finally meet all together 😉

#MERLINproject 🧙‍♂️presents an #innovative #solution that is expected to have a positive impact on the #environment, recovering and #recycling the 3.03m/t a year of multi-layer packaging #waste in EU:
✔ #SORTING ✔#DELAMINATING ✔#RECYCLING ✔#VALIDATING

It's #MERLINWednesday📌

Did you know that currently 17% #plastic #packaging is made out of multi-layer material and therefore difficult to #recycle? ♻

The #MERLINproject will focus on the development of 𝐒𝐎𝐑𝐓𝐈𝐍𝐆 #technologies for multi-layer post-consumer and post-industrial #packaging waste✅
