The use of renewable energy is one option for reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Biomass is one of the most important renewable energy sources in Austria. While estimates of the potential of agricultural and forest biomass to contribute to Austria's energy system are available, estimates of algae's potential are at an early stage of development. In order to determine the potential role of algae for Austria's energy system, 9 algal-based energy pathways (e.g. production...
