With increasing concerns of microalgal-biodiesel, algal residues after lipid extraction are raising great attention for energy production. A batch test of 15 days under mesophilic condition was conducted to evaluate the effects of inoculum to substrate ratios (ISRs) on the methane production by anaerobic digestion of Chlorella sp. residue. The stability and progress of the reaction from algal residue to methane were monitored by measuring the pH, volatile fatty acids (VFAs), total ammoniacal… CONTINUE READING
