A major challenge in the commercialisation of biofuel from micro-algae is the reduction of the operational energy required for its production and in particular the energy used in cell harvesting and oil extraction. The use of a disc stack centrifuge to achieve a combined cell harvesting, cell disruption and oil separation process is briefly examined and discussed.
