Working with our partners at MicroBio Engineering we have co-developed the world’s first large-scale algae pond system in a kit format currently in sizes ranging from 20 m2 to 101 m2 with larger sizes in the works for 2016. APIAC™ ponds are top quality raceway systems that are assembled from some of the most robust materials available yet they remain a very economical option. Since the kits are all inclusive there’s minimal planning, scrounging and other “busy work” involved.
A Brief History of APIAC™
Although the concept was a long held dream of CLI and our partners at MicroBio Engineering, this particular implementation was envisioned, designed, built and operational within the span of 6 months. The rapid development period was made possible by utilizing three-dimensional modeling software and a dream team of stakeholders with unmatched CNC manufacturing capabilities and lots of 7 day work weeks. This explosion of development occurred when a chance phone call between MicroBio Engineering and CLI made it evident that both entities had the same raceway pond kit goal and each player was holding half of the design puzzle and a spontaneous partnership was forged. Our enabling APIAC technology is incorporated into complete above-ground pond systems that are exclusively marketed by MicroBio Engineer (MBE), Inc. under the banner of Algae Raceways™. The APIAC system was developed by a designer and engineers that know algae, having many decades of experience working with critical eyes in this field. This knowledge was translated into a serious finished product. True to our form and mission, all components are of top quality materials designed to provide many years of economical service.

Over 20 years ago we co-developed the first economically viable membrane liners used in algae raceway ponds. We understand the economic constraints confronting algae biofuel & biomass production. For this reason we are constantly researching the most cost effective alternatives available. We engineered specialized fabrication equipment allowing the introduction of polypropylene liner membranes into this application. We are familiar with all available membrane lining materials and can offer more options than any other provider. We have provided millions of square feet of material for algae applications and we remain dedicated to pioneering advancements in this technology.
As algae production facilities grow the treatment of post production media water is the next big hurdle to address especially as regulatory concerns are becoming more and stringent within the United States. Aeration can be one of the most cost effective options in dealing with accumulated organic based sludge. Most aeration systems do not treat sludge. Our aeration systems will both oxygenate the water and help eliminate organic based sludge. We also offer bacteria to help break down preaccumulated sludge materials. CLI aeration systems are probably the most energy cost effective aeration system available typically consuming 50% less power per pound of dissolved oxygen delivered
