Laser-Processed Composites Help Harvest Biofuels

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Pulsed lasers on a porous sheet allow for efficient microalgae production on a scale that can answer the need for cultivating a source of clean energy.

Dimitris Alexandropoulos and Konstantina Tourlouki, University of Patras; and Simone Mazzucato, SISMA SpA

Ever-increasing environmental concerns have placed biofuels in the spotlight of research and development efforts in search of a clean energy solution. In this context, microalgae biomass harvested with pulsed lasers is a viable alternative for the production of biofuels, including biodiesel, bioethanol, biogas, and biohydrogen1. Microalgae are rich in energy content and their mass production makes techno-economic sense. In addition, they offer an inflated growth rate, a substantial capacity for CO2 fixation, and the release of O2 into the environment2. Microalgae’s main...Read full article
