The present investigation evaluates the potential of an endolithic cyanobacterium isolated from marble rock to utilize sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO₃) as carbon source for prospective recycling of CO₂ into biodiesel. Microalgae thriving on marble were cultured and subjected to increasing NaHCO₃ concentration. The most competent isolate was identified and characterized in terms of growth, lipid content and fatty acid profile. A semicontinuous mesh incubator was designed for biofilm development… CONTINUE READING
