What is the real photosynthesis efficiency of algae?

Well, can algae really reach close to the theoretical maximum photosynthesis efficiency of 11% ? In real-life, does anyone know what is the maximum that is achieved?

Hi,
The photosynthetic efficiency of microalgae varies based on the Solar irradiation, CO2 uptake...According to FAO for microalgae it is at a rate of 3 - 6% ( See the calculation here: http://www.fao.org/docrep/w7241e/w7241e05.htm). Which could be futher increased by cultivation in photobioreactor in which Flow rate of CO2 could be increased.
