Efficient anaerobic digestion of whole microalgae and lipid-extracted microalgae residues for methane energy production.

The primary aim of this study was to completely investigate extensive biological methane potential (BMP) on both whole microalgae and its lipid-extracted biomass residues with various degrees of biomass pretreatment. Specific methane productivities (SMP) under batch conditions for non-lipid extracted biomass were better than lipid-extracted biomass residues… CONTINUE READING
