Cost of land Vs algae in India Posted by Manohar on Fri April 30 2010 04:05:53 AM 8

One of the key factors to be taken into account is the cost of land while growing algae or cost of ponds etc.,

The cost of land in India is more than the cost of land in USA or Europe.

Many real estate companies are ready to buy agricultural land and convert them into houses. It may not be legal.
So was construction of houses with more than 1.5 FSI.
The realtors just built more than 1.5 and got it sanctioned later from the corrupt authorities.

Land and consequently the water bodies which are with the Gov are expensive relatively.

Municipal sewage, sceptic tanks are available in plenty ie in both urban and rural areas. if we can have India specifir solution for growing algae, it will be great.

In algae to oil, one of the major problem is
consistent growth of algae. Ie the perfect strain and the methodology to grow it without contamination, regularly.
