Applications

algae biofuel UV resistant pipeWith its unique optical properties and availability in ThinWall™ or Schedule 40 dimensions in numerous sizes, GF Harvel EnviroKing®UV clear PVC piping provides an optimal solution to a wide variety of green energy applications such as low-pressure piping for photobioreactors or as durable transparent containment vessels in pressure applications.

Typical uses for GF Harvel EnviroKing®UV clear PVC tubing are found in algae farming, carbon capture technologies, biofuel production facilities, university research laboratories, research & development centers, and other green energy applications where visual monitoring of processes is necessary.

GF Harvel EnviroKing®UV can provide new solutions for established industries or emerging technologies alike:

  • Photobioreactor or algae bioreactor tubing
  • Biorefiners
  • Renewable energy—production of renewable biofuels such as algae biofuel, biodiesel, agrofuels, algae fuel, algae oil, algae biomass, ethanol, etc.)
  • Carbon capture and storage, carbon sequestration, or carbon recycling as a way to reduce carbon emissions
  • Algaculture
  • Aquaculture
  • Filtration tubing
  • Sight glass applications
  • Level and flow indicators
  • Process R&D (research & development)
  • Algae farms or algae production, where algae is intentionally cultivated
  • Photohydrogen—hydrogen produced with the assistance of natural or artificial light for the purpose of a renewable energy source such as biofuels
  • Biological hydrogen production—conducted in a bioreactor where algae produces hydrogen and other gases
  • Geoengineering to counteract the effects of global warming from greenhouse gas emissions
  • Photosynthesis—converting carbon dioxide into organic compounds using sunlight
  • Other outdoor applications where UV resistant clear tubing is needed
