By Debabrata Das

This e-book significantly discusses assorted facets of algal construction platforms and a number of other of the drawbacks relating to microalgal biomass creation, particularly, low biomass yield, and energy-consuming harvesting, dewatering, drying and extraction methods. those supply a historical past to the state of the art applied sciences for algal cultivation, CO2 sequestration, and large-scale software of those systems.

In order to faucet the economic strength of algae, a biorefinery proposal has been proposed that may support to extract greatest merits from algal biomass. This refinery inspiration promotes the harvesting of a number of items from the feedstock in order to make the method economically beautiful. For the previous couple of a long time, algal biomass has been explored to be used in a variety of items corresponding to gas, agricultural vegetation, pigments and prescription drugs, in addition to in bioremediation. to satisfy the large call for, there was a spotlight on large-scale creation of algal biomass in closed or open photobioreactors. diverse dietary stipulations for algal progress were explored, akin to photoautotrophic, heterotrophic, mixotrophic and oleaginous.

This booklet is aimed toward a large viewers, together with undergraduates, postgraduates, lecturers, power researchers, scientists in undefined, strength experts, coverage makers and others who desire to comprehend algal biorefineries and likewise maintain abreast of the newest developments.
