Marine Biomass as Renewable Energy
5 March 2018 - 6 March 2018
One source of biofuels has been identified as marine biomass or marine algae. Many researchers are working on the feasibility of using algae as a feedstock for producing bio-fuels. One example of biofuel from marine algae would be the conversion of Marine biomass to methane via anaerobic digestion, which can generate electricity. Another potential for algae is its potential for biodiesel.
One great characteristic of micro-algae is that it doesn’t rely on soil and land. They thrive in water which is salty or dirty. Therefore, they do not need fresh water resources. Algae also have high growth rates, good growth densities which also makes them a good source for biofuels. Algae can be grown in a variety of climates and in different types of production methods. These can be from photo bioreactors, ponds and fermenters.
The conference aims to explore the challenges and opportunities in the area of marine algae as a source of biofuel. It will highlight the recent developments in research areas.
