Unprecedented rates of return are achieved in waste treatment by producing multiple revenue streams from a single approved waste stream. By combining several proven technologies from quality vendors that today work independently rates of return rise from the traditional 0% to 5% range requiring subsidy to an astounding 40% range and more using this approach.

to an astounding 40% range and more using this approach. Engineers look at potential failure modes

Engineers look at potential failure modes and eliminate them before they become problems. They are perfectionists. They have to be if we are to enjoy the benefits of complex systems. Ask yourself, how often do you want the brakes in your car to work? 90% of the time? 99% of the time? The answer is obvious, you want your brakes to work in your car 100% of the time. Nothing less than perfection is acceptable in this application. Otherwise, your automobile is an unacceptable hazard. At the same time, the brakes must be reasonably priced. The same is true in nearly everything you use today.

The list of possible failure modes in complex systems is endless over their life cycle. A combined total of 40,000 parts in a large system of liquids containing a variety of cell cultures, describe the Zeecol system. It is like a fish tank on steroids. Containing costs while maintaining perfection is a critical factor to significant economic success. The good news is that systems containing millions and even billions of parts routinely achieve perfection today.

even billions of parts routinely achieve perfection today. Businesses maintain perfection at finite cost by

Businesses maintain perfection at finite cost by implementing an Open Issues and Project Tracking (OIPT) management methodology in combination with Lifecycle Management (LM) software tools to support project management. This allows for detailed project management and the attainment of perfection at reasonably predictable costs even in a changing competitive environment.

Tuleap Open ALM is a project management tool Zeecol currently uses. It is an application lifecycle management tool which includes support for agile development and project management. Tuleap received the InforWorld.com Bossie Award in 2013 and is used by Fortune 500 companies, small and medium businesses, and open source projects.

Tuleap allows for agile, traditional, hybrid, or custom processes for project management. It supports planning, sprints, tasks, reports, and more. This tool is very suitable for open source development companies, as the tool also integrates with Git, SVN, Jenkins, and more making it well suited to work across many vendor teams.

Tuleap is licensed under a GNU Public License and is available on GitHub. The open source version contains all features and allows for unlimited projects and users. In addition to professional support, there is an active community for support and documentation. Tuleap is in active development.

Zeecol builds owns and operates facilities that process fluids in which a variety of single celled organisms live. We start with fluid dynamics and use a software tool called CFD, computational fluid dynamics. CFD is a software modeller. CFD uses proven applied mathematical equations and algorithms to evaluate the effects of various interacting and non-interacting factors affecting fluids gases and materials. CFD results include thermal gradient mapping, fluid and gas flow, pressure, pressure drop, radiation effects, heat loss, material optimisation, flow optimisation, velocity as a result of radiation and thermal convection and much more.

So, think about building a radiator for your car. Your engine runs, water heats up, it flows through the radiator. The engine has to be kept cool under a wide range of conditions. The metals expand and flex, and a large number of details have to be gotten right in order to build reliable effective radiators that have long life and low cost. The same goes for the system we need to produce multiple revenue streams.

Zeecol uses OpenFOAM (for "Open source Field Operation And Manipulation") software. OpenFOAM is a C++ toolbox for the development of customised numerical solvers, and pre-/post-

processing utilities for the solution of continuum mechanics problems, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The code is released as free and open source software under the GNU License. The fluids in the system are built out of materials. To select the most effective material FEA software is used, Finite Element Analysis. FEA is a Software Solid Modeler. FEA uses proven applied mathematical equations and algorithms to evaluate the effects of various interacting forces affecting structures, materials and mechanisms. FEA results are used in design optimisation, fatigue analysis, predicting structural life times and much more.

If you put your fingers on the edge of your desk and press down, your fingers will stretch as you press down, that’s called displacement. The stretching of your muscles in your arm, that’s called stress. FEA computes the stress and displacement of material objects and helps specify design details for producing components possessing superior performance at low cost.

Components are assembled into systems to carry out specific tasks and functions to achieve performance goals. Interactions are computed and system performance is optimised. Once the process is perfected, the result is engineering schematics for the system to be built. Those schematics are reduced to three dimensional models. Those models are subjected to further analysis, they’re not just renderings, they are computer models that can be analysed. These result in engineering drawings that are submitted to vendors and that results in cost quotes.

Zeecol uses the integrated open-source tools of CAELinux, to simulate incredibly complex physics with the open-source FE & CFD solvers Code_Aster, Code-Saturne, OpenFOAM & Elmer: non-linear thermo- mechanics, coupled fluid-structure dynamics, seismic / non-linear explicit dynamics, contacts, visco-plasticity, fluid dynamics, heat exchange, convection heat transfer and radiation in other words nearly all physics problem can be addressed with the integrated solvers! Then reload our results files in post-processing applications like Salom, GMSH or Paraview to visualize our data in 3D. All these features are based on open- source / free softwares, so we don't have to pay for any expensive licenses and because its open source, we can improve things when we want and build significant IP.

CAELinux is based on the open-source CAD/CAM software such as Freecad, LibreCAD, PyCAM and Cura and CAE softwares like Salom, Code_Aster, Code_Saturne, OpenFOAM and Elmer

Zeecol designs CAD geometry, performs multiphysics simulations to optimizes design, generates G-code for 3D printing and milling, and even develops custom PCBs & microcontroller based electronic circuits for automation.

For example, using Freecad, you can design your parametric CAD geometry with ease, generate a computation mesh and setup your simulation problem in Salome_Meca in a few minutes. After your design is checked you can go on preparing a G-Code for CNC milling a prototype with PyCAM or 3D printing it with Cura.

With detailed designs and specifications Zeecol is then ready to go to vendors to obtain quotations for pricing and delivery. Performance is then tracked with the same project management software used at the beginning. We use this to work with vendors in order to detail expected pricing.

So, here is a schematic that details the processes required for automated algae production. Using CAE processes outlined above, a digital model is prepared from the schematic. From that model a working prototype is completed. Operation of the prototype results in engineering data from which a larger production prototype is prepared. That prototype is built and tested. In this case a 38,000 litre algae system that fits inside a 40 foot shipping container. Here the design is optimised and pricing reduced for production units.
