Algal Biorefinery: An Integrated Approach by Debabrata Das

By Debabrata Das

This e-book seriously discusses assorted features of algal construction structures and several other of the drawbacks on the topic of microalgal biomass creation, particularly, low biomass yield, and energy-consuming harvesting, dewatering, drying and extraction strategies. 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 notion has been proposed that can aid to extract greatest merits from algal biomass. This refinery suggestion promotes the harvesting of a number of items from the feedstock in order to make the method economically appealing. For the previous couple of many years, algal biomass has been explored to be used in quite a few items comparable to gas, agricultural plants, pigments and prescription drugs, in addition to in bioremediation. to satisfy the massive call for, there was a spotlight on large-scale construction of algal biomass in closed or open photobioreactors. diversified dietary stipulations for algal development were explored, equivalent to photoautotrophic, heterotrophic, mixotrophic and oleaginous.

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