Economic aspects of the management of algal production


Tsur, Y. ; Hochman, E. Economic aspects of the management of algal production; CRC Handbook of Microalgal Mass Culture; 2017; pp. 473-483.


This chapter concerns the economic aspects associated with the development of the biotechnology of algal mass culture. Economic considerations have a major role in the chain of events that lead from the first research ideas and lab experiments up to the development of a self-sustained industry. Throughout the process there is an interaction between economic factors, such as prices of inputs and outputs as well as cost of research, and the various biological factors. © 1986 by Taylor & Francis.
