Life cycle and technoeconomic analysis of microalgae-based biofuels
Microalgae are an appealing feedstock for production of biofuels due to their high productivity compared to terrestrial plant-based feedstocks, and their relative tolerance of low quality land and water. Despite these potential benefits, there are technological, environmental and economic challenges that must be overcome to enable commercialization of any microalgae-to-biofuels process. Due to the relative immaturity of the field, assessments of the environmental performance, scalability and economic performance of microalgae-based biofuels are highly uncertain, data poor, and incomparable ...
