I am attempting to calculate the average concentration of elemental carbon per gram of dried freshwater microalgae for a climate change project.
If it makes it to production, the algae will be grown in large tubes, desiccated, hermetically sealed, and stored for later processing.
It would be helpful to have an estimate of exactly how much carbon is being locked away in the process.
NOTE: If the difference in concentration between species is significant, answering for major freshwater microalgae groups would be helpful. Narrowing down what species of algae to use is also within the scope of the project.
