Abstract The viability of the industrial production of three strains of Spirulina platensis was tested in Malaga, Southern Spain. In a pre-industrial trial using raceway ponds from laboratory-scale to 450 m 2 , all three strains displayed satisfactory growth. In a 10-month industrial trial in 450 m 2 ponds, production was equivalent to 30–32 metric tons of dry powder per hectare per annum. In conclusion, intensive industrial production of Spirulina is viable in certain Mediterranean climates, a… CONTINUE READING
