Harvesting and Processing of Microalgae Biomass Fractions for Biodiesel Production ( a Review )

  title={Harvesting and Processing of Microalgae Biomass Fractions for Biodiesel Production ( a Review )},
  author={Neelma Munir and Nadia Sharif and Shagufta Naz and Farkhanda Manzoor},
There has been a recent resurgent interest in microalgae as an oil producer for biofuel applications. An adequate supply of nutrients and carbon dioxide enables algae to successfully transform light energy of the sun into energy rich chemical compounds through photosynthesis. A strain with high lipids, successfully grown and harvested, could provide oil for most of our process by volume, which would then provide the most profitable output. Significant advances have also been made in upstream… CONTINUE READING
