USE OF MICROALGAE FOR WASTEWATER TREATMENT AND BIOFUEL PRODUCTION: EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANTS ON THE CELLULAR RESPONSE

Microalga-based technologies are introduced to provide a new generation of biofuels. The cultivation of microalgae in wastewater as the growth medium may offer the dual benefit of wastewater treatment and sustainable biofuel production. The potential of microalgal biomass to be converted into biodiesel depends on the accumulation of lipids, mainly triacylglycerols. However, the presence of toxic contaminants in municipal or industrial wastewater could negatively affect the biomass growth and modify the pattern of lipid accumulation...
