A Brief Overview of the Company
HY-TEK Bio started with the widely accepted fact that it has demonstrated through extensive research over many years:
Algae consume 1.83 grams of carbon dioxide (CO2) to produce one gram of biomass.
With that initial metric and its breakthroughs in bioreactors, grow lights, and nutrients, HY-TEK Bio now reduces carbon dioxide and grows biomass in a closed system that meets or exceeds contemporary regulatory rules and corporate goals.
The process is fully proven, with excellent results. HY-TEK Bio's pilot plant is completely self-contained, indoors, and operates under optimal conditions at all times. It is independent of seasonal and daily variations in temperature and sunlight, and it can operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world.
HY-TEK Bio's operating facilities are modular and scalable, so they can work with any size generating capacity, from small engines at landfills and wastewater treatment plants, through waste-to-energy plants, to anaerobic digesters and large power stations.
UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND THESIS FOCUSES ON COMMUNITY GROWTH OF SCENEDESMUS
Researchers at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences Institute for Marine and Environmental Technologies (UMCES/IMET) have authored a study detailing the favorable conditions for algal growth using a community growth standard. The lead authors of the study were doctoral candidate Wang Hualong and UMCES Professor Dr. Feng Chen.

3.7 Million Dollar DOE Grant
2020-2023 and a $3.7 Million Depart of Energy Grant
HY-TEK Bio in partnership with the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science in Baltimore and the Argonne National Labs, was awarded a $3.7M grant to increase the carbon capture capabilities of HY-TEK Bio’s technology. Work is progressing very successfully in that algal growth performance has improved and the technology is operating as predicted, ready for the next stage in the grant process.
