Microalgae-based CO2 capture from flue gas is an attractive mitigation strategy in the cement industry. However, NO x and SO x components might be harmful to microalgae. We performed toxicity assays, under 2 % (v/v) CO2 and using nitrite, sulfite, or bisulfite salts, on an environmental isolate, identified as Desmodesmus abundans (The University of Texas at Austin (UTEX), no. 2976) and Scenedesmus sp. UTEX1589. Nitrite and sulfite did not inhibit growth at the tested concentrations (0–1,067 ppm… CONTINUE READING
