Unique bioreactor finds ideal locations for algae production

Aeration helps algae grow and helps replicate real-life conditions in the Simulated Algal Growth Environment (SAGE) reactor at NREL. The reactor controls light and temperature, helping scientists determine not just what strain will grow the best, but where in the United States it may do so. Ideal strains can be harvested for their lipids, proteins, and sugars for use in biofuels. Credit: Dennis Schroeder, NREL

A unique bioreactor at the Energy Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) can help find the ideal locations for farms to produce algae that could someday compete with renewable diesel, cellulosic ethanol, and other petroleum alternatives as transportation fuel.Read more at: http://phys.org/news/2014-02-unique-bioreactor-ideal-algae-production.html#jCp
