Abstract:
Production of microalgal derived biofuels and bioproducts have recently been the focus of significant academic and commercial research, with the aim of replacing prevailing finite fossil fuel derived alternatives. Much of these efforts are focused on increasing algal and lipid productivity in order to reduce costs to an economically sustainable level, while maintaining environmental sustainability. In this research project, a series of investigations were carried out to determine the influence of organic carbon supplementation on the carbon metabolism of green algae and how this impacted both growth rate and lipid productivity.
