B-Scada Provides IoT Solution to Optimize Algae Cultivation in Colorado

B-Scada, Inc. (SCDA) has announced today the release of a new case study detailing the work done by Algae Lab Systems using B-Scada’s software technology to help monitor and control photobioreactors for commercial algae cultivation and aquaculture. Algae is cultivated for numerous purposes, including wastewater treatment, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, biomaterials and more.

Algae Lab Systems originally contacted B-Scada when a customer of theirs was looking for a way to aggregate data from several hundred AlgaeConnect(TM) systems, each with several photobioreactors/ponds in a single system (AlgaeConnect(TM) is Algae Lab Systems’ proprietary photobioreactor Monitor and Control system designed to help optimize algae yield). The customer wanted a centralized interface through which to access their data. Using B-Scada’s software, Algae Lab Systems was able to develop a solution that employed custom graphics and allowed their customer to aggregate data from multiple AlgaeConnect(TM) deployments. B-Scada was involved to help provide some custom functionality and support.


Per Christopher Lee, CEO of Algae Lab Systems:

“We are well poised to cater to larger contracts with these added capabilities. In the short term, we have been able to close a sale with a customer who required … functionality such as custom graphics and large scale data aggregation beyond our original offerings. The B-Scada staff are outstanding in their politeness, response time, and willingness to help.”
