1,440 min./day

Goal; Production per day per liter capacity = 30 grams dry algae per Liter.

3.78 L/gal X 30 gr/L = 113.4 grams/gal/day

1 tonne cement = 1.25 tonnes of CO2

1 ton of coal when burned = 2 tons CO2
1 megawatt-hour of coal produced energy = .91 tonnes CO2

Do you have any to add to this list????

    I'm sorry! When I first wrote these figures out they were in a neat table format. After I sent them out to the blog everything was just run together. Looked horrible! So I decided to put something between the lines, something like "O"s'.
    I apoligise.....I think it looks worst now then before.

    Cool and useful stuff, Alan. Way to go!

    A coupla notes:
    Algae production goal: you have written 30 g/ liter per day. I think it should be 30 g/m2/day. Right now, it is about 1 g/l/day for open ponds, and perhaps about 3 g/l/day for PBRs

    Rest seem to be OK

    And once again, a nice idea to put down all these in one place

    I know I am a poor student. But you are giving me so many zeros before even I understand the funda.
    I wonder how many zeros you will give me when you conduct a test. J

    Can someone put Alan's ALGAE MATH COURSE in a more simple table without the zeros. Please !

    Narsi, thanks for the encouragement.

    In my blog where I said "30 grams per liter per day" I ment to say '30 grams per liter CAPACITY'
    per day' it makes a big difference if you can figure out what we are doing.
    Take Care.......Alan Schaefer....

    Manohar Sir,
    SCFM:Standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM) is the volumetric flow rate of a gas corrected to "standardized" conditions of temperature, pressure and relative humidity, thus representing a precise mass flow rate.
