Biofuel production from microalgae as feedstock: current status and potential.
Algal biofuel has become an attractive alternative of petroleum-based fuels in the past decade. Microalgae have been proposed as a feedstock to produce biodiesel, since they are capable of mitigating CO2 emission and accumulating lipids with high pro

Scum sludge as a potential feedstock for biodiesel production from wastewater treatment plants.
The main goal of this study was to compare the component and yield of biodiesel obtained by different methods from different sludge in a wastewater treatment plant. Biodiesel was produced by ex-situ and in-situ transesterification of scum, primary an

Screening microalgae isolated from urban storm- and wastewater systems as feedstock for biofuel.
Exploiting microalgae as feedstock for biofuel production is a growing field of research and application, but there remain challenges related to industrial viability and economic sustainability. A solution to the water requirements of industrial-scal

Fungal pretreatment of raw digested piggery wastewater enhancing the survival of algae as biofuel feedstock.
Understanding about the impact of white rot fungi on indigenous bacterial communities, NH4+ and turbidity in digested piggery wastewater, will allow the optimization of wastewater treatment methods and its use as a feasible medium for algal growth. H

Microalgae as sustainable renewable energy feedstock for biofuel production.
The world energy crisis and increased greenhouse gas emissions have driven the search for alternative and environmentally friendly renewable energy sources. According to life cycle analysis, microalgae biofuel is identified as one of the major renewa

Computational fluid dynamics simulations of membrane filtration process adapted for water treatment of aerated sewage lagoons.
The aim of this study is to apply the membrane bioreactor technology in an oxidation ditch in submerged conditions. This new wastewater filtration process will benefit rural areas (

Aquatic plant Azolla as the universal feedstock for biofuel production.
The quest for sustainable production of renewable and cheap biofuels has triggered an intensive search for domestication of the next generation of bioenergy crops. Aquatic plants which can rapidly colonize wetlands are attracting attention because of

Dual potential of microalgae as a sustainable biofuel feedstock and animal feed.
The rise in global population has led to explorations of alternative sources of energy and food. Because corn and soybean are staple food crops for humans, their common use as the main source of dietary energy and protein for food-producing animals d

Growth and biochemical composition of filamentous microalgae Tribonema sp. as potential biofuel feedstock.
Filamentous oleaginous microalgae Tribonema minus have advantages in relatively easy harvesting and grazers resistance in mass cultivation due to its filaments in previous study. To evaluate whether the genus Tribonema is a valuable candidate for use

Growth kinetics of Chlorococcum humicola - A potential feedstock for biomass with biofuel properties.
Economically viable production facilities for microalgae depend on the optimization of growth parameters with regard to nutrient requirements. Using microalgae to treat industrial effluents containing heavy metals presents an alternative to the curre
