Decision Support Toolset

The Decision Support Toolset is a unique set of intuitive tools to inform and guide investors, technology developers, businesses, policy makers and researchers on micro and macro algae cultivation, featuring:



  • • Maps of algae stakeholders, potential production sites and algae cultivation in North West Europe

  • • A growth modelling tool based on real algae physiology data

  • • An economic modelling for various cultivation & downstream processing methods including biofuel production

  • • A 3D walkthrough demonstration of algal cultivation process

  • • Country reports containing policy & regulatory information supporting new algae investment initiatives

  • • Best practice guides and standard operating procedures on algae cultivation


The Decision Support Toolset has been developed as part of the EnAlgae (Energetic Algae) project, co-funded by the EU funded Interreg IVB programme, led by Swansea University in partnership with 18 partners across North West Europe. For more information, visit : http://www.enalgae.eu.
