Abstract

Tuscany (Italy) is the most important area for geothermal electrical energy production in continental Europe. Large-scale algae facilities require huge amounts of CO2 for algal growth and heat for culture thermoregulation and biomass drying. Thanks to Enel Green Power S.p.A. (EGP) financial contribution, a 120 m 2 pilot algae facility was built by F&M close to one EGP power plant at Chiusdino (Siena, Italy) to evaluate the use of geothermal streams (CO2 , condensed steam (40-45°C) and cold water (25°-28°C) from cooling tower), in the cultivation of microalgae. The pilot plant has been operated since June 2017 with A. platensis F&M-C256 grown outdoors in raceway ponds and Green-Wall Panel (GWP ® ) reactors to compare performances.
