The I-PHYC Solution

At I-PHYC, we understand that wastewater operators face growing environmental and economic pressures

Our experience

Combining a wealth of industrial experience with a shared ambition to protect the environment, our team of experts in algae and wastewater technology have devised and patented an innovative solution to wastewater treatment.

The result?

Clean effluents that produce valuable biomass.

How it works?

I-PHYC’s system uses algae and cutting-edge technology to extract nutrients from wastewater. The system’s modular design can be scaled for industrial use and adapted to the needs of wastewater operators.

How it works?

I-PHYC’s system uses algae and cutting-edge technology to extract nutrients from wastewater. The system’s modular design can be scaled for industrial use and adapted to the needs of wastewater operators.

Multiple pollutant removal

Algae can absorb nutrients, minerals and other compounds from a variety of wastewater sources and use these to reproduce, while leaving clean effluents and excess biomass that contains the recovered materials.

Reduced carbon emissions

 Algae can feed off and utilise carbon dioxide from various sources, consolidating it into high-value biomass and preventing its escape into the environment.

Biomass production

The biomass recovered from wastewater can be used to produce valuable resources for the rapidly-growing bio-based industry, such as renewable energy, fertilisers, feed stock and protein for animal feed.

Cost efficiency

As well as extracting value and energy from waste, the I-PHYC system is designed to significantly reduce running costs for wastewater operators.

Chemical free treatment

Besides requiring the occasional deep cleaning of equipment, the I-PHYC system is entirely free from chemicals and produces virtually no waste.

By integrating the I-PHYC system with their own treatment process, operators can enjoy a number of benefits:

The Right Team

I-PHYC have seen the challenges wastewater operators face to produce cleaner effluents and safeguard the environment. In response to this challenge, the founders have called upon their considerable combined industrial experience and academic backgrounds, along with their passion to protect the environment to offer a solution to the hazards posed by nutrient rich effluents. The founders have designed and patented an innovative solution to provide cleaner effluents whilst producing additional value from wastewater effluents.

A Process Designed for Industrial Use

Industrial Phycology has designed and patented a system to harness the power of algae to remove nutrients from the ground up using cutting edge methods and technologies, specifically for industrial scale use and to meet the needs of the wastewater operators for improved effluents.

The benefits of such an approach are many and not limited to:

To Be Modular & Scalable

A Modular nature making it easily scalable and simply integrated with, or added to the end of the treatment process.

To Treat a Range of Wastewaters & 
Reduce Carbon Emissions

The process can be configured to make use of variety of wastewater sources. Algae are able to take up nutrients and minerals from these sources and use them to grow, cleaning effluents in the process.
Additionally, algae can take carbon dioxide from industrial sources such as flue gases, boosting growth rates of algae and locking carbon emissions into biomass.

To Be Efficient

An approach has been taken to maximise energy and cost efficiencies and develop a process that:
Has vastly reduced running costs
Requires no chemical additions –  apart from occasional cleaning
Produces virtually no waste – turning waste in to product.

To Extract Value From Waste

Along with improved effluents, the process recovers material in wastewaters into biomass. Biomass can be valorised by operators for a variety of uses; including renewable energy, fertilisers and protein for animal feed.
