Aerial View of the Amine Plant and Solix Biofuels Plants

"NI has provided the products, tools, and ongoing technical support that we use to quickly develop and deploy our technology for growing algae to produce fuel."

- David Rausen, Solix Biofuels

The Challenge:
Developing a data acquisition system and control platform that is flexible for R&D yet rugged for industrial deployments of Solix’s Algal Growth System (AGS™) Technology.

The Solution:
Using an integrated combination of NI Compact FieldPoint and LabVIEW to monitor and control our process systems and manage the recorded data, and the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) Module and NI DIAdem data management software to store and process the data and make it available for detailed analysis.
