7. Algae biomass recovery and utilization


This chapter deals with the design of high-rate algae ponds, the operational problems encountered, the type of algae produced, the results of the tests, harvesting and using algae as an animal-feed protein supplement, and the economic feasibility of the system on a large pig farm. The design and operation of small experimental and full-scale prototype facilities and equipment are outlined to illustrate the development and operation of a dynamic biotechnology station.
