The cost of nutrient media is the major challenge for biomass production of Spirulina. Although much effort has been made to use enriched seawater for the cultivation of this microalga, little attention has been given to the potential of water of soda lakes. In this study, growth (μ, day−1) and biomass production (B) of Arthrospira fusiformis cultivated using waters of the soda lakes Chitu and Shala with or without supplementation were evaluated. Comparable μ and B values were achieved in both… CONTINUE READING
