Microalgal biomass production has been investigated since the 1950s by academic and industry sectors due to its potential and for biodiesel production. One of the main bottlenecks in microalgae production is biomass recovery and its separation from aqueous medium. For this reason, the use of a flocculation process is an important step to promote microalgae recovery in large scale. Here we provide a strategy for the harvesting of microalgal biomass using chitosan as flocculating agent in pilot… CONTINUE READING
