January 2010 Algae Aqua-Culture Technology and Stoltze Land and Lumber Company agreed to develop a model bioprocessor. The primary goal of the project is to demonstrate how mill and logging waste can be incorporated into a closed loop system to generate high value byproducts that will provide additional revenue and increased efficiency with a much smaller carbon footprint.
AACT’s flagship system is the GREEN POWER HOUSE, which takes waste biomass and algae and produces four different kinds of fuel and three kinds of organic, soil-regenerative amendments and fertilizers. The process is off-grid, closed loop, waste-free and carbon-negative. Because the system reclaims water from the biomass as well as rainwater collected from the building itself, it also is water-neutral or even water-positive. One system, which takes up about 1/4 acre (1/10 hectare), can power 100 homes, and an array of six systems can power a light industrial plant or a small town on less than 2 acres (less than 1 hectare). Also, each Green Power House system doubles as a year-round, climate-controlled vertical growing system, providing about a half-acre or 1/5 hectare of food production.
The GPH is the unique integration of our three sub components, PBR, ABR and OCE. These components work together to convert waste byproducts from other agricultural, silvicultural, municipal or industrial processes into energy and soil amendments.
Baby its cold outside, but inside AACT’s Green Power House™ the weather is beautiful.
Super Smart Integrated Biosystems
AACT integrated bioprocessors consume waste heat and carbon carbon dioxide to produce renewable energy and organic soil amendments. AACT systems are ideally suited for the production of methane, hydrogen and bio-oils that can be used as fuel for farm and industrial equipment or to generate electrical power. As the system produces no waste, its byproducts are valuable high grade organic fertilizer and soil amendments.
AACT bioprocessors are housed in a state-of-the-art greenhouse structure called the Green Power House ™, or GPH. The GPH is a self sustaining, self managing greenhouse that can be used for the year round production of organic food in virtually any climate.

2) Anaerobic Bioreactors: Biological reformatting of Algae and Organic Waste
3) Organic Carbon Engine: Converts Cellulosic Biomass into Biochar, Bio-Oil, Heat and Fuel
Primary Products are Organic Soil Fertility Conditioners/Soil Regenerating Products, which include liquid soil fertility conditioners, soil regenerating concentrate, and soil regenerating garden/potting soil. Secondary Products are methane, greenhouse space, bio-oils, heat for industrial applications and electricity.
Products are organic, weed-free, fossil-fuel-free, soil-regenerating and off-grid–all produced in a warm, moist a tropical biodome (the Green Power House) that allows you to step directly from a Northern winter into what feels and smells like a little bit of Maui. Their carbon recapture and optimization technology allows producers to potentially control much of their energy and fertilizer production and, as a result, to avoid the huge economic stresses of wild swings in energy and fertilizer costs.
Mission Statement: AACT’s mission is to reformat bioenergy and residual or “waste” biomass into high-value, organic, agricultural and industrial products. AACT is recycling and reconditioning ‘bio-waste’ to reduce ecological impacts while maximizing environmental sustainability and producing a profit for AACT shareholders.
**We’re doing this so we can: rejuvenate Earth, help to feed Earth’s billions, heal its air, purify its water and return excess atmospheric carbon to soil and to life.
