oil extraction 8

among very few diatoms are producing recoverable oil.still if think abt yield is only 45-50%. so viablity is ?. more of it is quality also?. Need some advise regarding some interference while extraction the pheophorbide (degraded product).

    Are you working on biodiesel from spirulina?????????? or diatoms?

    Is that milking of diatoms or harvesting by killing?

    Ya, like cow milking for milk, i.e with out killing you can let them grow and take the top floating oil, only thing is to maintain high cell density to get more yields ......

    no ,since i am a commercial person.the yield is very less if we r in open ponds. need atleast 85-90% otherwise the cop will affect the viability.

    as we know that spirulina is a high grade and valuable species.why don't you think of it as herbs/medicine instead.
