This booklet severely discusses varied facets of algal construction platforms and a number of other of the drawbacks regarding microalgal biomass creation, particularly, low biomass yield, and energy-consuming harvesting, dewatering, drying and extraction procedures. those offer a heritage to the state of the art applied sciences for algal cultivation, CO2 sequestration, and large-scale software of those systems.

In order to faucet the industrial power of algae, a biorefinery notion has been proposed that can aid to extract greatest advantages from algal biomass. This refinery notion promotes the harvesting of a number of items from the feedstock so one can make the method economically appealing. For the previous few a long time, algal biomass has been explored to be used in quite a few items reminiscent of gas, agricultural plants, pigments and prescription drugs, in addition to in bioremediation. to satisfy the large call for, there was a spotlight on large-scale construction of algal biomass in closed or open photobioreactors. varied dietary stipulations for algal progress were explored, equivalent to photoautotrophic, heterotrophic, mixotrophic and oleaginous.

This booklet is aimed toward a large viewers, together with undergraduates, postgraduates, teachers, 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.
