The best algae production process for maximum efficiency and economy

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Highest productivity per unit area. What is the optimum basis for planning production quantity and product quality? These factors are decisive for efficient and practical operation of an algae production facility.

Open Raceway Pond, Plastic Bags and Glass Tube PBR are the most widely used processes for the production of algae. Is an open or closed system better for production? At the beginning, this is usually the most frequent question. If the Open Raceway Pond process is eliminated as an open production process, the typical alternatives to use are either the Plastic Bags or the Glass Tube PBR system.

Our E-book serves as an aid in deciding for or against a certain production method. We compare the three procedures and provide information on what to look for when deciding for or against a production process. This guideline does not focus primarily on the technical properties of these methods but the specific focal point of comparing the procedures in terms of their economic aspects.
Open Raceway Pond, Plastic Bags and Glass Tube PBR - How do these three widely used algae production processes compare directly with one another?
This E-book tells you. The details are as follows:
  • Which technique has the longest life expectancy and therefore the lowest TCO?
  • Which process provides the best productivity and why?
  • Which method is best for planning production sequences and production quantities?
  • Which process allows algae to be produced at particularly low cost?
