Designed with high surface area to volume ratio for maximum photosynthetic light absorption, therefore promoting high productivity.Read More
In line with digital communication and innovation trends, the facility is integrated with monitoring system, so called Internet of Things (IoT) to ease monitoring of growth condition of microalgae.Read More
SBC is Sarawak’s only leading research centre with established microalgae library and outdoor cultivation facility. Our collection contains more than 650 living algae strains isolated from a wide range of unique aquatic habitats in Sarawak. We have identified promising local microalgae from the library that have various commercialization application. Hosting one of its kind Algae Cultivation Facility, which can be scaled up to 60,000 litres per run allowed us to further explore the undiscovered possibilities from our library.
