Algae Test & Evaluation Facility pilot plant located at the City of Logan Wastewater Treatment Plant

Utah State University and the Logan City (Utah) Environmental Department have collaborated to develop a testbed facility where research and testing is being conducted utilizing algae-based engineering systems for algal biomass production and water quality improvement.

The Algae Test & Evaluation Facility (AT&E) pilot plant is located at the City of Logan Wastewater Treatment Plant. The 10-acre AT&E facility consists of commercial, pilot, and bench scale growth, harvesting, and biofuel processing systems. The site also includes an on-site laboratory, an indoor facility setup for different harvesting applications, an enclosed building dedicated to anaerobic digestion systems, two greenhouses, and a small office and machine shop.

The AT&E is a complement to the Algae Processing and Products Facility (APP) located on the Innovation Campus of Utah State University, which was developed to promote ongoing research on algae processing and utilization to produce bioproducts, as well as other bioproduct based research.
