Wild Algae Harvesting 2Thanks to Oilgae and it's community --I have been able to circumvent a major expense in my design for harvesting wild algae with a barge / pontoon that scoops 5 to 10 cm of the water surface collecting algae @ an average of 3 grams per litre (dry grams). Algae Venture Systems has developed a excellent system that negates the need of centrifugal spinners, a huge cost saving in equipment costs and energy requirements. Over the next few months after securing the equipment and it's arrival in South Africa trials will be under taken. Currently there is an abundant supply of wild algae available for commercial scale use. For instance the huge 100 km2 algal bloom off the cost of china. I've spent 4 years researching this avenue for commercial scale algal bio-fuels.
