Where can I find legitimate and genuine cost quotations for algae presses of various capacities? I looked around and googled, but somehow most data I got from the web does not seem to be genuine...does anyone have a link or a company name from which I can get precise quotations for algae presses / screw presses, especially for large capacities (Over 200 T per day of algae biomass pressing)?

Would like to re-open this topic and ask again if anyone knows the prices of presses for small-scale, medium-scale and large-scale algae oil extraction....

I see some numbers at sites such as Alibaba etc., but am not sure if these are reliable

Since there is as yet no algae oil industry, I doubt there will be an algae oil press market. Perhaps you need to look to similar presses and price them out. Then the only thing would be the cost of any modifications you would have to make to get the press to work with algae.

Thanks DR...well, the funny thing is, somehow I am not able to get reliable price estimates for regular presses, not algae presses...prices are available for small presses, but for large presses that can handle say about 150 T per day and more...nopes...

I have written emails to a few folks, so let's see

Hmm. REALLY large machinery like that tends to be a specialty item, designed and built specifically for the job. Were I you, I might look to other companies who have bought such presses and ask them. The companies that MAKE them tend to want to charge for the consulting services it you ask them.

Good luck!
