Microalgae could substitute crops in biofuel production due to their high biomass productivity and lipid content, although none of the existing systems has been enough cost-effective to compete fossil fuels or biodiesel produced from plants so far. Nowadays, microalgae production is usually carried out in open pond and closed photobioreactors; however, these technologies have some limiting factors including high water demand, contamination, large surface area requirements, self-shading and low productivity. ALGADISK project could provide a technology that gives solutions for these limiting factors of open pond and closed photobioreactors. The project includes the selection of microalgae species with high lipid content and examining and determining their ideal growth and operational conditions, construction an energetically efficient reactor system with automatic harvesting system, and a computer based tool in order to optimize operational conditions and estimate profitability, furthermore reducing water demand, reaching at least 2 0 g/l algal biomass.
