Description

Handbook of Microalgae-Based Processes and Products: Fundamentals and Advances in Energy, Food, Feed, Fertilizer and Bioactive Compounds provides a complete overview of all aspects involved in the production and utilization of microalgae resources at commercial scale. The book explores the microbiology and metabolic aspects of microalgae, microalgal production systems, wastewater treatment based in microalgae, CO2 capture using microalgae, microalgae harvesting techniques, and extraction and purification of biomolecules from microalgae. Sections cover biogas, biodiesel, bioethanol, biohydrogen, single-cell protein, single-cell oil, biofertilizers, pigments, polyunsaturated fatty acids, bioactive proteins, peptides and amino acids, bioactive polysaccharides, sterols, bioplastics, UV-Screening compounds, and volatile organic compounds.

The coverage of a broad range of potential microalgae processes and products in a single volume makes this handbook an indispensable reference for engineering researchers in academia and industry in the field of bioenergy, sustainable development, and high-value compounds from biomass, as well as graduate students exploring those areas.

Key Features

  • Covers theoretical background information and results of recent research
