Biomass Production and Nutrient Removal of Chlorella Zofingiensis Cultured in Artificial Wastewater in Winter

L. Zhu, J. Takala, E. Hiltunen & Z. Wang
Microalgae production in wastewaters is one of the best methods to reduce excessive nutrients. Meanwhile, microalgae have also been considered as one of the most promising biofuel feedstock. Nonetheless, one of the major factors affecting algae technology application is growth performance in winter. In this present study, an integrated approach, which combined freshwater microalgae Chlorella zofingiensis cultivation in winter with artificial wastewater treatment, was investigated. Two treatments (pH regulation group and control group) were designed,...
