In this article Algae is evaluated as a feedstock for biogas
production in a two phase digester. The overall biogas production and
methane concentration documented here is compelling. If algae can be a
suitable feedstock for biogas production, then perhaps this process
could be streamlined to become more efficient than growing algae for
it's oil. I read this article and found myself thinking not only that,
but also that perhaps it could be done in a single integrated system.
Perhaps algae and biogas could be produced in multi stage systems that
could be more efficient than individual production.
