Production of microalgae biomass as an alternative feedstock for biodiesel is a promising technology. The reduction in energy consumption of traditional algae cultivation systems is today one of the most important issues towards sustainable biofuel production. In the MAMBO project an innovative pond has been designed and realized to investigate the possibility of reducing energy consumption of the cultivation phase as well as the use of water. The aim of this project is in fact...
