There is worldwide interest in developing algal biofuel. One main reason for the lack of success so far in producing a sustainable transport fuel from microalgae is the high cost of biomass processing, especially dewatering and oil extraction. There is also a significant cost involved in the energy content of the nutrient fertilisers required for biomass production. Non-destructive oil extraction or “milking” from algae biomass has the potential to bypass all of these hurdles. Using a “milking… CONTINUE READING
