Materials, operational energy inputs, and net energy ratio for photobiological hydrogen production

Burgess, Gregory; Fernandez-Velasco, Javier

Description

We estimate the energy content, the operational energy inputs, and the net energy ratio (NER) of an industrial tubular photobioreactor used for the photosynthetic production of H2 by microalgae. The NER is the dimensionless ratio of the H2 chemical energy output (higher heating value) to the total primary energy input into the system. The calculated H2 output of the photobioreactor is based on a range of algal photosynthetic H2 generation efficiencies, and on the application of standard theory...[Show more]
