There is potential for algal-derived biofuel to help alleviate part of the world’s dependency on petroleum based fuels. However, research must still be done on strain selection, induction of triacylglycerol (TAG) accumulation, and fundamental algal metabolic studies, along with large-scale culturing techniques, harvesting, and biofuel/biomass processing.(More)
Nitrogen removal from wastewater by algae provides the potential benefit of producing lipids for biodiesel and biomass for anaerobic digestion. Further, ammonium is the renewable form of nitrogen produced during anaerobic digestion and one of the main nitrogen sources associated with wastewater. The wastewater isolates Scenedesmus sp. 131 and Monoraphidium(More)
Lipid accumulation is critical in the production of biodiesel from microalgae. However, little work has been done on the assessment of lipid accumulation during nitrogen stress in large research-scale outdoor raceways during different seasons; most values for lipid accumulation are assumptions based on work completed in laboratory settings or outdoor(More)
Semi-continuous algal cultivation was completed in outdoor flat-panel photobioreactors (panels) and open raceway ponds (raceways) from February 17 to May 7, 2015 for side-by-side comparison of areal productivities at the Arizona Center for Algae Technology and Innovation in Mesa, AZ, USA. Experiments used two strains of Scenedesmus acutus (strains LB 0414(More)
