Three methods for harvesting Chlorella sp. biomass were analysed in this paper--centrifugation, membrane microfiltration and coagulation: there was no significant difference between the total amount of biomass obtained by centrifugation and membrane microfiltration, i.e., 0.1174 +/- 0.0308 and 0.1145 +/- 0.0268 g, respectively. Almost the same total lipid content was obtained using both methods, i.e., 27.96 +/- 0.77 and 26.43 +/- 0.67% for centrifugation and microfiltration, respectively… CONTINUE READING
