Biodiesel Production by Marine Microalagae Using Multistoried Cultivation System

Research Project Outline

We propose a novel multistoried cultivation system, aimed towards the production of biodiesel using marine microalgae as a biomass resource. The introduction of our system can reduce carbon dioxide emission and will not require the use of food resources. As a candidate, a marine diatom has been selected from marine culture collection. The multistoried cultivation system will enable us to maintain a stable supply of biodiesel, which will not be affected by regional energy conditions, biomass circulation and the cost of raw materias.
