Evaluation of wastewater as a nutrient source for the cultivation of the model cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC6803
The rising demand for more sustainable and renewable energy sources has led to the development of using photosynthetic microalgae and cyanobacteria for biofuel feedstocks. Microalgae and cyanobacteria offer an attractive solution over the cellulosic and lignocellulosic feedstocks of first and second generation biofuels that compete for arable land, nutrients and water necessary for sufficient food crop production. It has been proposed for several decades that wastewater could be a sustainable and affordable source of water and nutrients. Phycoremediation of wastewater by microalgae as biofuel ...
