GLRPPR Sector Resource: Macroalgae as a Biomass Feedstock: A Preliminary Analysis

Title:
Macroalgae as a Biomass Feedstock: A Preliminary Analysis

Abstract:
A thorough of macroalgae analysis as a biofuels feedstock is warranted due to the size of this biomass resource and the need to consider all potential sources of feedstock to meet current biomass production goals. Understanding how to harness this untapped biomass resource will require additional research and development. A detailed assessment of environmental resources, cultivation and harvesting technology, conversion to fuels, connectivity with existing energy supply chains, and the associated economic and life cycle analyses will facilitate evaluation of this potentially important biomass resource.
