Algal Biorefinery: An Integrated Approach by Debabrata Das

By Debabrata Das

This e-book significantly discusses various elements of algal construction structures and a number of other of the drawbacks concerning microalgal biomass creation, specifically, low biomass yield, and energy-consuming harvesting, dewatering, drying and extraction approaches. those supply a heritage to the cutting-edge applied sciences for algal cultivation, CO2 sequestration, and large-scale program of those systems.

In order to faucet the industrial strength of algae, a biorefinery thought has been proposed which could aid to extract greatest merits from algal biomass. This refinery notion promotes the harvesting of a number of items from the feedstock on the way to make the method economically beautiful. For the previous few many years, algal biomass has been explored to be used in numerous items equivalent to gas, agricultural vegetation, pigments and prescribed drugs, in addition to in bioremediation. to fulfill the massive call for, there was a spotlight on large-scale creation of algal biomass in closed or open photobioreactors. various dietary stipulations for algal progress were explored, comparable to photoautotrophic, heterotrophic, mixotrophic and oleaginous.

This ebook is geared toward a large viewers, together with undergraduates, postgraduates, teachers, power researchers, scientists in undefined, strength experts, coverage makers and others who desire to comprehend algal biorefineries and likewise continue abreast of the most recent developments.
