This comes from "An Algae-based Fuel" by Olivier Danielo, published on the website:
"In order to have an optimal yield, these algae need to have CO2 in large quantities in the basins or bioreactors where they grow. Thus, the basins and bioreactors need to be coupled with traditional thermal power centers producing electricity which produce CO2 at an average tenor of 13% of total flue gas emissions."

A web site ( ) also provides some structured inputs on biodiesel production from algae...although I feel some of their sections need more meat and research
