The possibility of using heterotrophic chemostat culture to achieve relatively high cell densities of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii by avoiding the inhibition of growth by the substrate, acetate was investigated. Continuous culture gave significant improvement in cell dry weight concentration and productivity compared to batch culture. It is postulated that this was due to low acetate concentration in the continuous culture. The highest cell concentration obtained was 1·5 g/litre at a feed acetate… CONTINUE READING
