Research output: NRELSubcontract Report

Abstract

An objective of the Aquatic Species Program is the development of large scale culturing systems for the production of fuels from lipid-rich microalgae. A major constraint to any such culturing system is the provision of sufficient light in the most economical manner possible, which has led to the use of shallow outdoor ponds that are illuminated using natural sunllght.
