Study Production of Micro algea-based Products – Algetech, Norway
Author: Jan Berg-Nilsen

A map of available production methods for micro algae and market opportunities for algae-based products as a basis for establishing commercial operations.


With the starting point that there is considerable knowledge about micro algae in the Nordic Region, Algetech Produkter AS has carried out a study to map available production methods for micro algae and market opportunities for algae-based products as a basis for commercial activity.

Algetech Produkter AS has focused on creating an alliance of expert circles so that the necessary knowledge and competence would make it possible to achieve the objective of the project. Since there is relatively little experience of algae cultivation under Nordic conditions, trial production on an industrial scale has also been carried out to confirm that the climatic conditions are present for algae production in the Nordic Region.

The study is therefore also a pilot project for a planned industrial project. During the project period the group has collaborated with participants from throughout the Nordic Region except Finland. Data has been collected on technical, market and economic matters which, together with the result of the trial production, will form the basis for continued progress and realisation of plant for production of micro algae.

The study will in part be publicly available immediately, whilst part will be of a confidential nature for the present.

Public part:
A. Mapping of available production methods to improve established technology if possible
B. Market description (global for algae-based products and collection of information on Nordic industries that can employ or use algae-based raw materials)
C. Overview of Nordic expertise and resource centres
D. Report from trial production

Confidential part:
Preparation of business plan that will build on results achieved from trial production and will contain technical description of the planned project, capital requirement, operating budget, financing plan and marketing and sales strategy.

The study was carried out during the period 2004-2005 and the first half of 2006 and the long term objective was to show the probability of production of micro algae on an industrial scale in the Nordic Region.

Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae
Oilgae Blog
algOS – Biodiesel from Algae Open Source

About Oilgae – Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae has a focus on biodiesel production from algae while also discussing alternative energy in general. Algae present an exciting possibility as a feedstock for biodiesel, and when you realise that oil was originally formed from algae – among other related plants – you think “Hey! Why not oil again from algae!”

To facilitate exploration of oil production from algae as well as exploration of other alternative energy avenues, Oilgae provides web links, directory, and related resources for algae-based biofuels / biodiesel along with inputs on new inventions, discoveries & breakthroughs in other alternative energy domains such as solar, wind, nuclear, hydro, geothermal, hydrogen & fuel cells, gravitational, geothemal, human-powered, ocean & wave / tidal energy. We hope Oilgae proves to be useful as a research information & inputs resources, and as a source of news & info for business & trade of algal oil, algal fuels & new alternative energy products – specially with regard to new feedstock / feedstocks, production processes and uses, and market info such as price / prices, data & statistics
