A HPR-20 R&D with an all-metal variable leak valve inlet system was recently installed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology (IGB) in Stuttgart. In a research project within the Group of Algae Biotechnology Development, hydrogen is produced using the microalgae C. reinhardtii. The HPR-20 R&D is used to measure hydrogen and oxygen produced by the microalgae in real time.

As the Fraunhofer IGB continues to delve into the possibilities offered by the HPR-20 R&D and microalgae like C. reinhardtii, we stand on the brink of a new era in bioenergy research. This ground-breaking installation not only enhances our understanding of algae biotechnology but also paves the way for innovative solutions to energy challenges.
