In this study, the toxicity of ammonium was removed in the microalga Nannochloropsis oculata by using acetate as a carbon source. Algal biomass and lipid production were significantly enhanced when N. oculata was grew on 0.5-50mM of ammonium and 16-64mM of acetate in mixotrophic conditions. When grown mixotrophically on 1mM of ammonium and 32mM of acetate… CONTINUE READING
