Hydrothermal gasification is a process which uses any biomass or carbon-containing source as substrate to generate biogas of regenerative energy production. We used microalgae as biomass source and evaluated the potential of using the residual water of the conversion process as recycled nutrient source for cultivation of microalgae. Nutrient recycling was tested by monitoring growth of Acutodesmus obliquus and Chlorella vulgaris on residual water from hydrothermal gasification of A. obliquus… 
Sustainable production of microalgae biomass for biofuel and chemicals through recycling of water and nutrient within the biorefinery context: A review
Commercial‐scale production of microalgae biomass for biofuel and biochemicals requires a substantial amount of water and nutrients. Many studies are conducted to explore the potential of various

Algal Biomass from Wastewater and Flue Gases as a Source of Bioenergy
In this review, special focus is given to the algal capacity to remove contaminants from wastewater and flue gases, and the consequences when converting this biomass into different types of biofuels.
Parametric Characterization of Air Gasification of Chlorella vulgaris Biomass
The gasification of green algae Chlorella vulgaris in air was investigated using both a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) and a bench scale horizontal axis quartz tube reactor (HQR). The full range of
Catalytic supercritical water gasification : continuous methanization of Chlorella vulgaris
Continuous catalytic supercritical water gasification (CSCWG; 400 °C, 28 MPa) of microalgal biomass (Chlorella vulgaris) was carried out at the microalgae production site of ZHAW in Wadenswil
