  • Algae Problems

    Almost everywhere where water is being stored, algae problems may occur. When water is stagnant, has a high temperature or a high concentration of Nitrates and Phosphates, an algae bloom might occur, which can cause several problems. Blue-green algae growth can cause a foul odour to the water, a layer of scum on the surface and even pose a health risk. Green algae may colour the water green, look ...

  • Biofuel from algae ? photobiological hydrogen production and CO2-fixation

    The reduction of CO2-emissions that are damaging our climate is one of the major challenges of contemporary energy management. Nature itself offers us possibilities to produce energy CO2-neutrally with the help of hydrogen producing micro-algae. Under certain conditions the light energy collected by photosynthesis is used to transfer electrons to hydrogen producing proteins called hydrogenases. A ...

  • Influence of extracellular polysaccharides (EPS) produced by two different green unicellular algae on membrane filtration in an algae-based biofuel production process

    In the present study, two strains of green algae named S1 and S2, categorized as the same species of Pseudo-coccomyxa ellipsoidea but showing 99% homology, were cultivated under the same conditions and filtrated with a microfiltration membrane. On the basis of the results of the extracellular polysaccharides (EPS) characteristics of these two green algae and the degree of fouling, the ...
