    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    The objective of this work was to perform a survey over the energy requirements of various microalgae biomass production units to assist subsequent case studies undertaken in the CCSP program. The report gives an overview of the energy requirements assessment done in literature for the various equipment used in cultivation of microalgae. This includes various cultivation systems (raceway ponds and different types of photobioreactors), harvesting methods, drying of algal biomass, and cell disruption methods. In addition, the effect of local conditions is discussed.
