Advantages of CHP for Algae Production to be discussed at the Algae Biomass Summit, October 14-17, 2018
Biofuels from algae hold great promise as part of our renewable energy future. Advances in algae cultivation and processing are making algae biomass products the focus of intensive research and commercial interest. Experts in the field will gather at the upcoming Algae Biomass Summit in The Woodlands, Texas October 14-17, 2018. HARC Research Associate Dr. Fanxu Meng will discuss the advantages of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) for making these processes more energy efficient in his poster presentation “Combined Heat and Power for Algae Product Systems.” CHP technologies capture and utilize waste heat to supply thermal demand for heating, cooling, and other functions for energy efficiency. The U.S. Department of Energy Southcentral Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAP) at HARC provides support to help public and private entities understand and implement the many advantages of CHP.
