OK, here is the answer to question # 1 of Monday Math. 10Q. How big are the bio-reactors?
answer using just the info on the posts.
25,000 scfm CO2
X .12342 conversion factor (CO2 gas to CO2 lbs.
=3,085.5 lb/min CO2
./. 2.8 lbs. CO2 = 1 lb algae ( ./. means divide)
=1,101.9 lbs. dry algae per minute.
X 454 grams per lb.
=500,291.7 grams dry algae /min
X 1440 min. per day
=720,419,040 grams per day
./. 113.4 grams per day per gal
=6,352,901 gals in reactor capicity to convert 25,000 cfm of CO2 per minute 24/7/365!
There it is in 8th grade math.!!
