Subject: RE: Making Algae PhotoBioreactors at Home Purchase
Thanks Dave. I am making headway. I built a pilot raceway about 18 months ago to produce ethanol. Here are some pics.
This was a part of a small scale pilot, or “proof of concept” project in South Africa.

This project in Africa was to make biofuels as well as health food supplemts

This is a 150 gallon bioreactor in my garage. From this small reactor, which cost less than $500 to build, I can make 10+ gallons of biofuel a week with continuous harvesting.
