An efficient microalgal biomass harvesting method with a high concentration ratio using the polymer-surfactant aggregates process

Abstract:

The high cost and energy consumption related to the downstream harvesting and dewatering process is one of the most important bottlenecks limiting the commercial production of microalgal bioenergy. In this study, a novel microalgal biomass harvesting technique has been developed using polymer surfactant aggregates (PSAs). This approach has been applied to three different microalgal strains and two cynobacterial strains with a recovery efficiency of over 80%. In particular, the recovery effici...
