Growth and lipid production of microalgae were investigated, with attention to the feasibility of making use of flue gas CO2 as a carbon source. The effect of a high CO2 level in artificial seawater differed from strain to strain. Three algal strains from the Solar Energy Research Institute (Golden, CO) collection were selected as good fixers of CO2 when the level of CO2 in the sparging gas was high. These algae also accumulated large amounts of crude lipids. SOX and NOX inhibited algal growth… 
Effect of Flue Gas on Microalgae Population and Study the Heavy Metals Accumulation in Biomass from Power Plant System
This study evaluated the effect of several heavy metals that are present in flue gases on the algae, focusing on the growth and accumulation of lipids in the algae that can be converted to biodiesel.
Utilization of flue gas for cultivation of microalgae Chlorella sp.) in an outdoor open thin-layer photobioreactor
A scheme of a combined process of farm unit size is proposed; this includes anaerobic digestion of organic agricultural wastes, production and combustion of biogas, and utilization of flue gas for production of microalgal biomass, which could be used in animal feeds.
Current Techniques of Growing Algae Using Flue Gas from Exhaust Gas Industry: a Review
This review article will illustrate important relative mechanisms in the metabolic processes of biofixation by microalgae and their recent experimental researches and advances of sequestration of carbon dioxide by micro algae on actual industrial and stimulate flue gases, novel photobioreactor cultivation systems as well as the perspectives and limitations of microalgal cultivation in further development.
Carbon dioxide fixation by microalgae photosynthesis using actual flue gas discharged from a boiler
To mitigate CO2 discharged from thermal power plants, studies on CO2 fixation by the photosynthesis of microalgae using actual exhaust gas have been carried out. The results are as follows.1.A method
The effect of carbon dioxide concentration and the dimension of photobioreactor on the growth of microalgae Nannochloropsis sp.
This study quantitatively investigated the effect of inside diameter (ID) of photobioreactor and CO2 concentration on the growing rates of Nannochloropsis sp.
A Review on Microalgae to Achieve Maximal Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Mitigation from Industrial Flue Gases
Global climate change and atmospheric CO2 levels are increasing in the last decades mainly due to the rise in anthropogenic emissions. Point source emissions of CO2 from power plants during
CO2, NOx and SOx removal from flue gas via microalgae cultivation: A critical review
The use of microalgae for simultaneous removal of CO2, SOx and NOx from flue gas is an environmentally benign process and represents an ideal platform for CO2 reutilization.


Environmental control of lipids and fatty acid production in the diatomNavicula saprophila
The accumulation of cellular lipids by the diatom, Navicula saprophila, is described as a result of culture management strategies and the influence of the environmental conditions on the distribution of fatty acids was observed.
Energy production by microbial photosynthesis
The large amounts of microalgae produced in waste treatment ponds during sewage purification are a potential source of methane and fertiliser and harvesting of microalgal biomass could be accomplished by low-cost straining or sedimentation methods.
The Influence of Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen Partial Pressures on Chlorella Growth in Photosynthetic Steady-state Cultures
Summary: The effects of O2 and CO2 partial pressures in the range 0 to 1 atm on the maximum growth rate, starch production and photosynthetic efficiencies of growing cultures of Chlorella were
