Coupling of Algal Biofuel Production with Wastewater

  title={Coupling of Algal Biofuel Production with Wastewater},
  author={Neha Chamoli Bhatt and Amit Panwar and Tara Singh Bisht and Sushma Tamta},
Microalgae have gained enormous consideration from scientific community worldwide emerging as a viable feedstock for a renewable energy source virtually being carbon neutral, high lipid content, and comparatively more advantageous to other sources of biofuels. Although microalgae are seen as a valuable source in majority part of the world for production of biofuels and bioproducts, still they are unable to accomplish sustainable large-scale algal biofuel production. Wastewater has organic and… CONTINUE READING
