This chapter provides a review and deliberation on the latest development in algal harvesting through separation and concentration Biofuels are perceived as favorable replacements for fossil fuels in alleviating environmental problems such as carbon emissions Among the crops algae are considered more promising because of their effective transformation of sunlight into chemical energy To this end cells grown in batch and fed?batch cultures were induced at increasing cell densities (1 to 10??10 6 cells/mL) In batch the cell specific productivity and the product yield were found to reduce with increasing cell density at induction A dynamic feeding strategy using a concentrated nutrient solution applied prior and postinduction allowed to significantly increase the

Water is at the heart of many tribal cultures and the foundation of their livelihoods economies subsistence and treaty rights Water is essential to the sustainability of the fish wildlife and plants on which tribes rely The recent trend toward more severe and frequent droughts especially in the American Southwest threatens the very underpinnings of tribal communities The Southwest is


A process for the drying of algal biomass comprising: - producing an aqueous suspension of algal biomass concentrating said aqueous suspension of algal biomass in order to obtain a concentrated aqueous suspension of algal biomass depositing a layer of said concentrated aqueous suspension of algal biomass on a hydrophobic surface in order to obtain a layer having a thickness lower than or

Synthesis by drying and calcining calcium acetate-based solutions has been shown to yield high-capacity sorbent material with a fluffy morphology Selectivity for CO2 over N2 O2 and H2O can also be tailored by doping the precursor with alkali metals doping with cesium (Cs) yielding the highest selectivity compared with sodium potassium or rubidium dopants Alternatives to CaO such as

efficient dewatering and drying of these materials A lower water content results in a higher thermal value for the product smaller boilers more efficient combustion improved possibilities to control the combustion process and lower costs for transportation and storage Also a low water content is normally required when these biofuels are used as raw materials in a gasification process The

This research explores the effects of using common metal salts to address some of the barriers to the wider adoption of anaerobic digestion (AD) which include the generation of corrosive and odourous volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) pathogens remaining in the digestate along with the re-release nutrients from the digested solids The effects of chemical addition were studied by adding two

01/01/2019Since algal are aquatic microorganisms extensive drying of algal biomass is required to produce algal bio-oil through the pyrolysis process As aforementioned in Section 2 2 the need to dry the wet algal slurry is one of the detrimental factors that impede the commercialization of algal biofuels primarily due to the high consumption of energy in the drying process

It has been reported that one of the most energy and cost intensive steps in algal biomass production process is the harvesting and dewatering or drying of microalgae suspension (Uduman et al 2010 Rawat et al 2013) this is due to the low concentration in the culture medium and the microalgae small cell sizes (a few micrometer) (Vandamme et al 2011) Microalgal culture dewatering

Residual sludge disposal costs and environmental impact may be significant and reducing such costs as well as the energy consumption for dewatering and drying is a key issue for safe and sustainable sludge disposal considering the recent ban of some disposal options such as landfilling in many European countries An alternative to thermal technologies is solar drying (not to be confused
