ABS innoculated its first batch of Algae along with required formula for nutrients, co2, h2o and PBR frequencies. Growth excelleration commenced after 2 days (48 hours)
which falls in line with our design criterian/metrics. Future installations are in process on a weekly basis to reach our lipid output of 2000 gallons/day by June 2012.
ABS completed a major installation at its commercial facility in South Carolina and is now moving forward with its PBR (Photobioreactor) and
and extraction installations. This is a unique leap forward in its operations to finalize its "full turnkey operation" from beginning to end for lipid,
dry product and cake products for market. This process will ultimately be the first "Vertical oil well" above ground for Biofuels facility!
ABS installed its growing system and will continue further installs of various components to complete the manufacturing process of Algae products and services.
The primary focus will be with nutriceuticals/nutritional, Algae cake for animal feed/fertilizer and Algae lipid oils for Biofuel feed stock.
ABS is an SDVOSB (Service Dissabled Veteran owned Small business). It recently complied with CCR/ORCA registration and listed with VetBiz.
Algae Bioenergy Solutions, Inc. signed its lease agreement for Commercial Manufacturing, Laboratory and Office space at its new Graniteville, SC location and is in the process of building out its Algae Cultivation System, Extraction and product packaging systems for Algae oil, Algae cake and Dry powder products. This facility will include its own in-house Tanker/transportation for distribution, recycling operation/emitter for Power generation sharing and direct access for critical nutrients such as CO2 and effluents rich in growth materials. This operation will be self sustaining and rely little on energy from the Grid. Assembly of growth units and extraction equipment will commence by December 8, 2011 and full production is anticipated by second quarter 2012. Thomas Anhorn/VP Operations

BARD/ABS Joint Venture
April 5, 2011
Algae Bioenergy Solutions, LLC (ABS) is extremely pleased to join with Bard Holding, Inc, to develop a 10 million expandable to 100 million gallon a year algae oil facility in Augusta, Georgia. For over three years, ABS considered numerous algae technology companies to be our joint venture partner to meet our nation’s urgent need for a commercially viable renewable transportation fuel. Only BARD was able to certify their technology as truly being commercially reasonable. ABS is impressed with Bard’s vision and innovative scientists who have developed an elegant solution to rapidly grow and process algae. Algae produced by the Bard/ABS joint venture will be processed into biodiesel and other products, such as renewable jet fuel. Every gallon produced by BARD/ABS will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and help America to be energy independent once more.
President, Algae Bioenergy Solutions
Image them side by side, massed like a throng of stalwart soldiers protecting the realm. It is a fanciful image, but a bit hard to maintain when with a closer look you realize I am referring to algae in a holding tank at a biofuel production plant. Algae are among the simplest of organisms, some composed of only a single cell. The most familiar algae are the multi-cell giant kelps that grow in the ocean. There is nothing particularly appealing about algae - except as potential heroes in the struggle to replace fossil fuels.
ABS Plans Scale-Up in Georgia September 2, 2010 AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com Algae Bioenergy Solutions (ABS), of Augusta, Georgia, has announced preliminary plans to develop a three to five million gallons per year algae oil plant, expandable to forty million gallons a year, to produce feedstock for biodiesel and other products at their 98-acre site near the Augusta, Georgia Airport. The company plans to use inexpensive nutrients from wastewater and CO2 from a gasifier and digesters to produce large volumes of algae utilizing state-of-the-art photo bioreactors and alternative systems inside and outside of their 200,000 sq. ft. facility. The company is in discussions with a nearby biodiesel plant, currently processing chicken fat, to supply them with up to 40 million gallons of algae feedstock per year. The leftover dried algae biomass is intended to be used for other purposes including ethanol, cattle/farm feed, and compost. The biodiesel facility is partly owned by Chuck Pardue, who is also the owner of ABS. ABS plans to create initially a 1000 sq/ft. growing site in the fourth quarter 2010 at an approximate cost of $250,000 to verify scale up processes. They plan to expand over the following six months to a facility they say will be capable of producing three to five million gallons of algae oil annually. Copyright ©2010 AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com.
