In this project, ACRRES takes part in a network of algae pilots in Northwest Europe. Regarding the subject of microalgae, work was focused on designing a benchmark for installations; one of these algae installations can be found on the ACRRES site. A report was published in 2014 with models developed in this project, for algae cultivation (open pond, tubular reactors and flatbed) and usage opportunities for bioethanol, biogas and biodiesel. ACRRES also produced a macroalgae (seaweeds) model, with an accompanying report. The cultivation of algae has been investigated using various models. These models are also a discussion tool in order to improve the culture through analysis. Besides calculation, we also carried out an environmental/market analysis for algae products in Northwest Europe.
