CONGRESO Effect of different pretreatments on Scenedesmus spp. microalgae biomass solubilisation

Abstract

Algae species grown on stressed conditions could develop a stronger cell wall, thus limiting its solubilisation and biodegradability. Ultrasound, thermal, and mechanical pretreatments were applied to Scenedesmus biomass, and best results were achieved with thermal treatment. Struvite crystallization before anaerobic digestion of Scenedesmus biomass is not economically viable. Keywords
