Abstract In this study, chitosan was used as a flocculant to harvest freshwater microalgae Chlorella vulgaris . The recovery efficiency of C. vulgaris was tested at various chitosan concentrations. 120 mg/L of chitosan showed the highest efficiency (92 ± 0.4%) within 3 min. The maximum concentration factor of 10 was also achieved at this dose of chitosan. The harvesting efficiency was pH dependent. pH 6.0 showed the highest harvesting efficiency (99 ± 0.5%). Measurement of zeta-potential… CONTINUE READING
