A look at the completed biorefinery project from December 2020. Constructed for Bogazici university in Turkey.

Installation of the Schott glass components successfully done!  1650 x 65 mm tubes, (9km of tubing) and almost 1900 compression couplers, wetted, located, a quick twist of the wrists to pre tighten and then each coupler needs to torque wrenched to ensure just the right amount of pressure is applied to keep the marraige of tube and coupler water tight.

Pumps, reservoirs, water treatment, dosing systems, LED’s, Bubble columns are arranged and brought all together with wiring, plumbing and control systems.
