•This research involves the development of a database for existing algae species and their performance under different operating conditions.
•This research focuses on forming an integral mathematical system for the economic and environmental evaluation of algal technology.
•The ultimate goal is to construct a model capable of simulating different pathways or processes of converting algae to multiple products and identify the financial strength and weakness of pathways.
•In this research a full techno-economic assessment (TEA) was performed for a lab-scale algae growth system designed as a means for CO2 mitigation and conversion to useful biproducts.
