The report presents the results of research to determine the feasibility of utilizing high-rate algae ponds to produce water suitable for recreational purposes from domestic sewage. Also the feasibility of using dried algae from these ponds as a source of protein for animal feeds was determined. Data on the techniques and costs of harvesting algae, also needed for economic analyses, were obtained. Also presented is a tentative cost analysis of sewage treatment plants to assess economic feasibility of biomass systems plants.
