AlgaeVenture Systems had been developing three disruptive technologies with $6 million from an ARPA-E initiative; they needed help sharing their vision with new investors.
Rapid Accumulation and Concentration (RAC) Technology - In other words, pulling millions of algae particles out of the water; AlgaeVenture was imagining a mobile boat system that would deliver a concentrated algae solution to a Bio Refinery...
Bio Refinery - Just like it sounds, this refinery would sit near Grand Lake St. Mary's in Ohio as RAC boats harvest algae. This refinery would house AlgaeVentures SLS Technology...
Solid-Liquid Separations (SLS) Technology - With algae, as is the case in many other industrial applications, taking the water out of a solution to get at its contents is energy intensive and expensive. AlgaeVenture's lab sized model works great.
A combination of Solidworks 3D modeling, Keyshot rendering, Photoshop manipulation and Illustrator graphical elements created the final 3 images. AlgaeVenture took the imagery to the 2011 World Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi.
AlgaeVenture's business team knew what it's investors wanted to see - flashy, imaginative images of futuristic technology. AlgaeVenture's engineering team knew key constrains and limitations their new technology would have to follow. It was my job to make sure these somewhat conflicting interests were upheld during the development of the concept imagery.
