A Brief Discussion on Algae for Oil Production: Energy Issues
- David PimentelAffiliated withCollege of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University
Further laboratory and field research is needed for the algae and oil theoretical system. Claims based on research dating over three decades have been made, yet none of the projected algae and oil yields have been achieved. Harvesting the algae from tanks and separating the oil from the algae, are difficult and energy intensive processes.
