Abstract: This report shows that pig manure can be used for algal production in small farms. Huge pig sludge amounts produced using actual methods in large-scale pig breeding farms is a major issue due to the lack of disposal options and potential water pollution. This issue may be solved by using pig sludge for algal biofuel production. Therefore, we stud- ied an economical method of algae production on pig sludge that can be operated on animal farms in Hungary with modest levels of investment.
