Abstract

This experimental protocol was defined to examine the effect of mixotrophic culture of Chlorella vulgaris on the ammonia removal and microalgae biomass in batch and continuous cultivation. The maximum microalgae concentration was achieved on day 23 (1.3gr/L), respectively. The microalgae were able to reduce the N-NH3 concentration to 80% in continuous mode.

Keywords: Ammonium removal; Mixotrophic culture; Membrane bioreactor
