Three major technical aspects are involved in developing commercial systems for mass cultivation of algae. The first relates to the construction of the reactor system - its shape and depth, the method of mixing the algal-laden water, and most important, the lining. The second concerns separating the algal mass from the medium, and the third relates to the dehydration of the algal mass to facilitate product distribution and storage. A satisfactory solution to these three technological issues is essential before any large-scale cultivation can be economically pursued. 1 .
