I was going through and studying how algae bioreactors work. I am mostly working for closed systems like tubular photobioreactors. I want to create bioreactors to combat pollution problems. However, I don't know what challenges the current industry is facing and why they are not deployed on the large scale if effective?

Also, I would like to mention, I want to discard the produced biomass or excess algae as I would not process it for now..

  • $\begingroup$ One of the biggest projects for that is a japanese startup which aims to fly a plane using algea. money.cnn.com/2017/03/24/technology/japan-algae-euglena/… if you research them, you will find many infos search euglena with words like: biomass, process, large scale, efficiency etc. Trees converted into fire wood is probably simply more efficient and large scale and versatile as it uses all the cities waste wood?! collecting the fuel from the algea by filters and housing the algea is very complicated. $\endgroup$ – com.prehensible Oct 23 '17 at 17:48
