I-Phyc’s goal is to clean up the wastewater streams of the world, using the natural power of microalgae.
Approximately 50% of the oxygen in every breath you take was created by algae – they are a HUGE store to lock away carbon and a producer of oxygen.
We utilise a wide number of species of common, naturally occurring microalgae, that are found in most watercourses. The I-Phyc process industrialises the use of these same microalgae, developing polycultures and by maintaining this diverse range of organisms working together, the treatment system has a built-in level of robustness and resilience.
A diverse range of microalgae gives greater flexibility to the technology and its ability to quickly remove multiple nutrients and contaminants in a single process.
