Current Energy Technologies based on Algal Biomass: a First Step Economic Analysis of Energy Production

T. Loher, A. Peterhansl, M. Reisch & G. Becker
Focus of this analysis is the research of new regenerative energy concepts for the production of seaweed biomass and energy substances. A comparison of technical process quantities shows the technological development of seaweed reactors and gives insight to future potential for improvements. Major attention is dedicated to industrial and competitive mass manufacturing of micro algae for the production of biogas, hydrogen, fuel on rape seed oil basis and ethanol. A general survey of running production...
