Algae-based biofuels such as biodiesel or bioethanol, have significant advantages over crop-based biofuels. Algae grow at a significantly faster rate than more complex plants, they have far greater yield per unit area and they can be grown in compact, closed systems. One further advantage is the short lifespan and hence a faster cycle of testing and research into suitable biofuel candidates. It is this testing phase that benefits from Hiden’s dissolved species analyser, the HPR-40.
