Book Description :

Microalgae are microscopic algae, typically found in freshwater and marine systems. Microalgae, capable of performing photosynthesis, are important for life on earth; they produce approximately half of the atmospheric oxygen and use simultaneously the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide to grow photoautotrophically. The biodiversity of microalgae is enormous and they represent an almost untapped resource. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of microalgae, including microalgal biotechnological applications in nutrition, health and the environment; using microalgae biomass for biodiesel and biofuel production and microalgae for aquaculture.

Book Description :

This book addresses microalgae, which represent a very promising biomass resource for wastewater treatment and producing biofuels. Accordingly, microalgae are also an expanding sector in biofuels and wastewater treatment, as can be seen in several high-profile start-ups from around the globe, including Solix Biofuels, Craig Venter’s Synthetic Genomics, PetroSun, Chevron Corporation, ENN Group etc. In addition, a number of recent studies and patent applications have confirmed the value of modern microalgae for biofuels production and wastewater treatment systems. However, substantial inconsistencies have been observed in terms of system boundaries, scope, the cultivation of microalgae and oil extraction systems, production costs and economic viability, cost-lowering components, etc. Moreover, the downstream technologies and core principles involved in liquid fuel extraction from microalgae cells are still in their early stages, and not always adequate for industrial production. Accordingly, multilateral co-operation between universities, research institutes, governments, stakeholders and researchers is called for in order to make microalgae biofuels economical. Responding to this challenge, the book begins with a general introduction to microalgae and the algae industry, and subsequently discusses all major aspects of microalgal biotechnology, from strain isolation and robust strain development, to biofuel development, refinement and wastewater treatment.

Book Description :

This volume is a source book of protocols for studying, monitoring and managing harmful marine microalgae. Proliferation of microalgae in marine, brackish or fresh waters can cause massive fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins and alter ecosystems in ways humans perceive as harmful. About 300 species of microalgae are reported to form mass occurrences, so-called 'blooms', and nearly one-fourth of these species are known to produce toxins.This manual covers the fields of harmful algal sampling, identification, culturing, toxin analysis, toxicology and management.

Book Description :

Algae are recognized as one of the oldest life-forms (Falkowski & Raven, 1997). The use of microalgae dates back around 2000 years to the Chinese, who used Nostoc to survive during famine (Spolaore et al., 2006), and to the Aztecs who collected and cultivated Spirulina (Henrikson, 2011). For the past 50 years, extensive research has been performed on microalgae and how they can be used in a wide variety of processes or to manufacture many practical and economic important products. This group of individuals is present in several ecosystems, representing a big variety of species living in a wide range of environmental conditions. Microalgae can be autotrophic or heterotrophic; the autotrophic require only inorganic compounds such as CO2, salts and a light energy source for growth; the heterotrophic are nonphotosynthetic, therefore require an external source of organic compounds as well as nutrients as an energy source (Brennan & Owende, 2009). The cultivation of microalgae is an activity that offers high productivity in dry biomass, compared the production of seaweeds. One important advantage of the cultivation of microalgae is that it can be performed in various locations, due to the use of closed systems of cultivation. In addition, can generate crops throughout the year and has high photosynthetic efficiency and bioremediation potential. There are several groups of individuals who are part of the large group of microalgae; so many differences can be identified with respect to chemical and biological composition of each. Actually, the main genres worldwide cultured are Skeletonema, Thalassiosira, Nannochloropsis, Phaeodactylum, Chaetoceros, Isochrysis, Tetraselmis, Chlamydomonas, Dunaliella and Spirulina. One of the great advantages present in the cultivation of microalgae is the positive appeal to your benefits with regard to the environment. This production plays in a variety of ways to promote sustainability. Microalgae biomass has been proven as a sustainable feedstock for biofuels, feed and numerous value added products that involves nutraceuticals and therapeutic industry (Guldhe, 2016). Microalgae are a highly renewable resource. It can be grown and harvested all year round, in several environments. Production is low impact - microalgae cultivation needs no chemicals or pesticides, in addition to require no deforestation. Knowing the many uses and importance of these organisms to the different sectors of the industry, and your environmental importance, it is essential to maintain the targeted efforts in pursuit of the development of new technologies and applications, as well as improvements in cropping systems and processes used currently.
