Progress on the Algae Front

Algae Link announces a new type of algae photobioreactor (or what I call algae growing tubes). Shipped as a sheet and folded into a tube when it arrives. Making it the least expensive to ship, store, and construct (or so the Press Release says).

Algae hobbyists, scientists, and inventors rejoice.

Just a mention. The big hurdle with algae is keeping the strain you farm clean. There are so many strains of algae and its so prevalent everywhere in the world its always the case for an unexpected (and less productive/non productive) strain to pop up in your algae system. When a manufacturer or inventor starts talking about a nano-tech filter that guarantees algae purity - that's when to start listening.
