Evaluation of operating conditions for sustainable harvesting of microalgal biomass applying electrochemical method using non sacriﬁcial electrodes
The efﬁcient harvesting of microalgae is considered to be one of the challenging steps of algal biofuel pro-duction and a key factor limiting the commercial use of microalgae. To overcome the limitation of metal-lic ...
Thermal behavior and pyrolytic characteristics of freshwater Scenedesmus sp. biomass
(Taylor and Francis, 2015)
Thermal behavior and pyrolytic characteristics of Scenedesmus sp. biomass was investigated under five different heating rates of 5, 10, 20, 30, and 40°C/min by using thermogravimetric analysis. The calorific value and ...
Synthesis of biodiesel from Scenedesmus sp. by microwave and ultrasound assisted in situ transesterification using tungstated zirconia as a solid acid catalyst
Oleaginous Scenedesmus sp. was cultivated phototrophically in an open pond for biofuels production. The culture was harvested and subsequently dewatered and dried. The chemical properties of the Scenedesmus sp. lipids were ...
The optimization of biomass and lipid yields of Chlorella sorokiniana when using wastewater supplemented with different nitrogen sources.
The potential of nitrogen sources supplementing domestic wastewater for the cultivation of microalgae was assessed. Urea, potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate and ammonium nitrate were evaluated for their effect on cultivation ...
