Transfer project between TU Dresden and MINT Engineering


At the Institute for Natural Product Technology at TU Dresden, scientists have researched the model-based continuous cultivation of the cyanobacterium Arthrospira platensis on a technical scale. The aim of the technology transfer is the establishment of a continuous process control via a model-based control system for the cultivation of Arthrospira platensis on a scale of 30 L and 200 L for tube reactor systems for implementation in the MINT.control system.
The project is funded by the EFRE. We would like to thank the Saechsische Aufbaubank for the cooperation in the project.

MINT Engineering supports students for their youth research project on microalgae


MINT Engineering GmbH Berlin, 5th January 2018

On Friday, three highly motivated young researchers from the Wolfgang-Borchert School in Berlin-Spandau came by to pick up an algae suspension for their Jugend forscht project. For their project, which will be continued later on in the context of Lab2Venture, the three want to develop a model to improve the breathing air in classrooms. They want to build an algae-based filter system to reduce the CO2 cocentration in the air.
