Immobilization of Microalgae

Adhesive Flow Polymerisation Vesel

Several microalgae synthesize metabolites of great commercial interest. Microalgae also act as filters for wastewater N and P, heavy metals, and xenobiotic compounds. However, the cost-effective harvesting of microalgae is one of the major bottlenecks limiting the microalgal biomass applications. In this context, immobilization of algal cells has been proposed for circumventing the harvest problem as well as retaining the high-value algal biomass for further processing. In recent years,...
