Our unique technology

HelioBioSys uses a mixed population of carefully selected non-genetically modified marine cyanobacteria that obtain their energy from the sun, and carbon and nitrogen from the atmosphere. These highly efficient and robust bacteria are grown in seawater in managed open ponds. Our system produces fermentable sugars and polysaccharides that are easily separated from the biomass. They can be fermented into biofuels or chemical intermediates. The polysaccharides may be processed directly to create a variety of bioplastics.
