The Algae Testbed Public Private Partnership (ATP3): Facilitating

The Algae Testbed Public Private Partnership (ATP3): Facilitating the Commercialization of Algal Technologies Philip Pienkos Biofuels 2015 August 27, 2015 NREL is a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, operated by the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC. Goal Statement Mission: Establish a sustainable network of regional testbeds that empowers knowledge creation and dissemination within the algal R&D community, facilitates innovation, and accelerates growth of the nascent algal biofuels and bioproducts industry. Goals: - Increase stakeholder access to high quality, outdoor cultivation and laboratory facilities - Support DOEs techno-economic, sustainability, and resource modeling activities - Help to close critical knowledge gaps and inform robust analyses of the state of technology for producing algal biofuels and bioproducts

ATP3s Two Main Objectives Collaborative Open Testbeds Establish network of facilities for the algal research community and increase stakeholder access to real-world conditions for algal biomass production. Accelerate applied algae research, development, investment, and commercial applications for biofuel and bioproduct feedstock production. High Impact Data from Long Term Algal Cultivation Trials Design and implement a unified experimental program across different regional, seasonal, environmental and operational conditions comparing promising production strains at meaningful scales. Data made widely available to the TEA/LCA and overall research community allowing for a robust analysis of the state of technology. 3 Collaborative Open Testbeds ATP3 offers access to a wide array of services, capabilities and facilities: Stakeholder Access to Facilities

Testbed locations Regional testbed facilities for the partnership are physically located in Arizona, Hawaii, California, Georgia, and Florida. Why Engage with ATP3? Fuels 5 Entry to US market ATP3: Testbeds Open for Business Project Activities: biomass supply (1kg-100s kg), equipment testing, analytical testing, culture maintenance and consultation services to academia, industry and national labs Project Categories: fee-for service activities, sponsored research, and subsidized projects through ATP3 Support Program

Project Benefits: access to facilities to drive technology R&D, de-risk and validate Variety of independent and vertically integrated downstream harvesting unit ops Provide service to ATP3 customers - Produce algal biomass in the form of slurry, paste and dry powers - Serve as baseline technologies for the improvement of future harvesting/dewatering and oil extraction processes (Valicor and OpenAlgae platforms) Collaborative Open Testbeds: Site Access and Customer Management ATP3 offers a 3-tier fee structure Full data confidentiality (fully burdened rate site specific) Open access -willing to share data generated at test bed (discounted)

Subsidized Access (Scholarship and Innovators Awards) Site Access Plan: Boilerplate IP, MTA, NDA, and facilities use agreement in place for customers Simple templates for engagement one off projects, longer term engagement, and engagement with facility use Academic unit approval only for external sales of services if no major changes requested, can ATP3 Offers Support Program The Goal encourage and enable small businesses, entrepreneurs and underfunded academic researchers to pursue new approaches to solving technical issues associated with commercialization of algae biofuels, processes, and co-products. What is it ? - Access to laboratory, outdoor facilities and resource support for novel projects - ATP3 provides subsidized access to testbed facilities, technical expertise, and M&S - Preference for support will be given to: Short-term projects ranging from 1-3 months (typical project target $10K-$30K)

Researchers willing to share data and results widely through publication Projects that leverage on-going activities already occurring (e.g., UFS/AFS) Vetted through internal TAB/Exec team review Easy to start the process: Visit ATP3.org and fill out an expression of interest form Initial cohort of support projects Support may include: includes: Biomass (whole, extracted, oil) Novel cultivars for flue gas capture high value products (University of Delaware) Carbon management and delivery (LBNL) AD with LEA (Cal Poly) Feed-forward nutrient control (Penn State) VAL for CO2/O2 and integrated culture hydraulics and harvest (Searen LLC)

Rolling acceptance/review of applications Access to cultivation & downstream equipment (eq. transport, install/removal) Access to R&D, production & analytical expertise Access to laboratory and office space Travel stipends to testbed (currently limited to academic clients) 9 Open Collaborative Testbed: Summary 10 Education & Training Workshops

ATP3 has hosted 7 quarterly educational workshops Over 30 lecture modules Over 15 hands-on field site and laboratory activities Well attended by broad mix of academic and industrial participants More than 200 participants representing >70 different organizations 35% Foreign participants Most recent workshop: Large-Scale Cultivation and Downstream Processing (Nov 3-7th; Mesa, AZ) Principles and Processes: Algae Culture Maintenance, Production and Downstream Processing planned for May 2015 at NREL and CSM in Golden Colorado 11 High Impact Data: Long Term Algal Cultivation Trials ATP3 sets standards and conducts harmonized, rigorous, and objective long term cultivation trials to provide a realistic assessment of the state of technology for algal based biofuels and bioproducts.

Our Unified Field Studies (UFS) at the testbed sites along with our Advanced Field Studies (AFS) enable comparison of promising production strains at meaningful scale across variable conditions Our Scientific Data Management System and validated, harmonized SOPs for analytical and production processes ensures data integrity across all sites Our data from the UFS and AFS will be made publicly available and provide a critical resource to TEA and LCA analysis yielding high impact, validated data Productivity metrics: Volumetric dry weight Ash Free dry weight Lipids Carbohydrates 12

Protein Standardization of processes and systems is key to executing meaningful multi-site cultivation trials 13 UFS Strains/Cultivar: Primary Nannochloropsis oceanica (KA32), supplied by Cellana Not expected to be high productivity but known stable and robust cultivar especially for inland sites key for establishing baseline seasonal/regional performance Chlorella vulgaris, (LRB-AZ-1201) supplied by ASU Known to be less robust (open pond), but available and importable to HI, high performer in PBRs Additional strains to be used for AFS (and as part of UFS in 2015) Scenedesmus acutus Desmodesmus sp.

Representative cultivars for fuel and high value production (feed, omega3s) Substantial historical data for all strains (faster project startup) Unencumbered with little restrictions on strain/biomass distribution to third parties 14 2014 Seasons: Unified Field Studies Spring 2014/2015 Unified Field Study M Experimental Outline 1 A Summer M J J Fall A

in-depth analysis of these datasets Progressing through summer and fall samples now Data sets will be made available with the cultivation data 22 Public Access to Data Using the existing infrastructure and expertise of OpenEI.org will provide a rapid, robust, and lowcost solution for making the ATP3 datasets public. Initial summary data and protocols available detail curated data for year 1 of UFS to be complete this summer. Summary ATP3 has established a users facility across five sites in the US to increase stakeholder access to high quality, outdoor cultivation and laboratory facilities. Our fee structure and site access plan can provide customers with the appropriate framework for conducting business. Our education program provides hands on wet lab experience in algal cultivation and down stream processing.

Our internal research program has established a validated framework for implementing rigorous, long-term multi-site cultivation trials We have generated data to determine the effects of regional, seasonal, environmental variation that is to be expected for a national (international) deployment of algae cultivation We have established baseline performance across multiple seasons and have begun to expand that with additional strains and cultivation systems into CY 2016. By making data publically available, we will enable the modeling community (biomass productivity, TEA, LCA and RA) to refine their assessments and help understand the path to commercializaton. 24 ATP3 partners 25 Acknowledgements ASU Gary Dirks John McGowen Thomas Dempster Milt Sommerfeld William Brandt
