By Ashok Pandey, Duu-Jong Lee, Yusuf Chisti, Carlos R. Soccol

This e-book offers in-depth info on easy and utilized points of biofuels construction from algae. It starts with an advent to the subject, and follows with the elemental clinical points of algal cultivation and its use for biofuels construction, akin to picture bioreactor engineering for microalgae construction, open tradition structures for biomass construction and the economics of biomass creation. It presents state of the art details on man made biology methods for algae compatible for biofuels creation, by means of algal biomass harvesting, algal oils as fuels, biohydrogen creation from algae, formation/production of co-products, and extra. The booklet additionally covers subject matters corresponding to metabolic engineering and molecular biology for algae for gas construction, existence cycle overview and scale-up and commercialization. it really is hugely invaluable and lets you plan new study and layout new economically plausible techniques for the creation of unpolluted fuels from algae.

  • Covers in a complete yet concise method many of the algae biomass conversion applied sciences at the moment available
  • Lists the entire items made from algae, i.e. biohydrogen, gasoline oils, etc., their houses and strength uses
  • Includes the economics of a few of the strategies and the mandatory steps for scaling them up

Sample text

Technologies for recovering the biomass from the culture broth are assessed. A chapter is devoted to heterotrophic production of algal oils as potential fuels. Production of fuels via fast pyrolysis of algal biomass is treated in some detail. An overview is provided of algal oils as fuels in one chapter. A chapter considers production of biohydrogen from microalgae. Any production of algal fuels must consider the fate of the spent biomass. This is discussed in one chapter. A chapter is focused on the hydrothermal treatment of algal biomass to produce hydrocarbon fuels.

Green algae have a defined nucleus, cell wall, chloroplasts containing chlorophyll and other pigments, pirenoide, and a dense region containing starch granules, stigma, and scourge. Microalgae exist in various ecosystems, both aquatic and terrestrial. , 2010). The main advantages of microalgae cultivation as a biomass source are (Vonshak, 1997): • They are biological systems with high capacity to capture sunlight to produce organic compounds via photosynthesis. • When subjected to physical and chemical stress, they are induced to produce high concentrations of specific compounds, such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, polymers, and pigments.

2009). Microalgae are currently used in the form of tablets, capsules, or liquids. , 2004). , 2005). The Laboratory of Biochemical Engineering (LEB) at the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG) in southern Brazil has developed research projects since 1998 that study the cultivation of Spirulina on a pilot scale on the banks of the Mangueira Lagoon, as additives to meals for children of the region. Products that are easy to prepare, store, and distribute and that are highly nutritious and accepted by the consumer have been developed here.
