In this study, the microalga Scenedesmus dimorphus was cultivated phototrophically using unsterilized anaerobic digestate as a nutrient medium. A bench-scale experiment was conducted by inoculating the microalga S. dimorphus with 0.05–10% dilutions of the anaerobic digestate supernatant. It was found that 1.25–2.5% dilutions, which is equivalent to 50–100 mg N/L total nitrogen concentrations and 6–12 mg P/L total phosphorus concentrations, provided sufficient nutrients to maximize the growth… CONTINUE READING
