  author={Y. Bazarnova and T. Kuznetsova and E. Trukhina},
We carried out cultivation of Chlorella sorokiniana microalga using various irradiation sources: daylight lamp with spectral range 530-610 nm and filament lamp with spectral range 3.5-5.0 ?m. Specific growth rates were evaluated for these conditions at exponential phase. From the obtained biomass we extracted lipids and determined its' fatty-acid content. Also we analyzed triacylglycerol (TAG) content and unsaturated fatty acids, as well as oleinic acid content. Biomass irradiation by infrared… Expand
A method for obtaining plastid pigments from the biomass of Chlorella microalgae
Microalgae are distinguished from land plants by the high content of plastid pigments and the biodiversity of carotenoids. The aim of this study is to develop a technology for extracting a pigmentExpand

In recent years, high value lipid extraction in order to convert into a biodiesel product was potentially investigated among various microalgae strains. As a proof, in this research study, aExpand
Biochemical modulation of growth, lipid quality and productivity in mixotrophic cultures of Chlorella sorokiniana
The promise of using sodium thiosulphate along with selected substrate for enriching the quality and quantity of lipids, which can be valuable for exploiting algae as a source of biodiesel is revealed. Expand
Energy Production from Chlorella Algae Biomass Under St. Petersburg Climatic Conditions
The alga Chlorella sorokiniana was cultivated under natural conditions of St. Petersburg with natural lighting, without aeration, and with stirring once per day. The controls were strains of theExpand
Influence of media composition on the growth rate of Chlorella vulgaris and Scenedesmus acutus utilized for CO2 mitigation
The urea based media investigated here resulted in growth similar to that found with previously reported KNO3 based media, which should result in an economic benefit in large scale algae cultivation for CO2 mitigation, since urea is typically less expensive than K NO3. Expand
Biomass production and identification of suitable harvesting technique for Chlorella sp. MJ 11/11 and Synechocystis PCC 6803
Electro-flocculation showed high flocculation efficiency (98 %) and floatation of floc causing easy harvesting and low-cost and easy control of the process justify electro-Flocculation as a most suitable and promising technique for the recovery of microalgal cells. Expand
Physiological role of neutral lipid accumulation in eukaryotic microalgae under stresses
A review of experimental data obtained so far allowing to distinguish at least three aspects of TAG adaptive function in microalgae shows that TAG biosynthesis consumes excessive photoassimilates preventing photooxidative injuries under stresses which reduce cell capacity of photosynthesis product utilization.
