Key Cost Components of Algae PBR Posted by Narsi on Thu March 25 2010 08:38:28 AM 18

I was discussing with my colleague on the cost reduction strategies in PBRs.

Our discussion turned to the key components that are significant contributors to cost:
1. Materials
2. Aeration
3. Lighting

I have requested my colleague to read up on the latest efforts in these specific topics. I hope to share the data from these with our newsletter readers.
