BioFuel from Algae

The cost analyses for large-scale microalgae production evolved from rather superficial analyses in the 1970s to the much more detailed and sophisticated studies conducted during the 1980s. A major conclusion from these analyses is that there is little prospect for any alternatives to the open pond designs, given the low cost requirements associated with fuel production. The factors that most influence cost are biological, and not engineering-related. These analyses point to the need for highly productive organisms capable of near-theoretical levels of conversion of carbon dioxiide to biomass.

The key commercial issues with Algae are the production volumes and cost per litre exit price when considered alongside the operation and inception costs.

Brillyant is testing modifications of its non-chemical disinfection technology for the enhancement of oil yield from both fresh water and salt water algae.
