A company focused on research related to algae cultivation discovered a novel way not only to increase yield and density of their culture but that had significant application to improve mass gas transfer between phases. This phenomenon has significant application for direct air carbon capture.

A successful SR&ED application was framed around a technological challenge related to enhancing a mass gas transfer exchange and the systematic investigation that occurred that resulted in both an increase in scientific understanding and an increase over a baseline measurement in rate of gas exchange.
