  • Nutrients
  • 2013). Furthermore, various phytochemicals and functional nutrients present in microalgae make it a potentially attractive alternative to growth promoting antibiotics in animal feeds. (umn.edu)
  • With the help of sunlight microalgae thus can be grown on purely inorganic nutrients many of which are considered waste products in our modern society such as nitrogen and phosphorous compounds. (phys.org)
  • species
  • For a few major phyla such as the green microalgae, diatoms, dinoflagellates and haptophytes a sufficiently large number of species (over 100 in the case of diatoms) have been analysed for sterols allowing some generalisations to be made and characteristic features to be identified. (springer.com)
  • In Brazil, Embrapa Agroenergia (DF) was able to identify species of microalgae that can be cultivated in liquid waste from agroindustrial processes, effluents.This crop can generate renewable raw material for biofuels, feed, cosmetics and various other products.The research, which lasted three years, also resulted in the discovery of previously unknown species in Brazilian biodiversity.

  • Today cultured microalgae is used as direct feed for humans and land-based farm animals, and as feed for cultured aquatic species such as molluscs and the early larval stages of fish and crustaceans. (wikipedia.org)
  • A range of microalgae species are produced in hatcheries and are used in a variety of ways for commercial purposes. (wikipedia.org)
  • The objective of this review is to describe industrial production, species, nutritional value, and data on the potential utilization of microalgae and microalgae products, specifically in diets for pigs. (umn.edu)
  • There are thousands of different species of microalgae, which vary in nutritional composition. (umn.edu)
  • The general nutritional characteristics of several species of microalgae are shown in table 1. (umn.edu)
  • Although many microalgae species have been identified and isolated for lipid production, there is currently no consensus as to which species provide the highest productivity. (mdpi.com)
  • fatty acids
  • In France, an international team has discovered an enzyme which allows microalgae to convert some of their fatty acids into hydrocarbons using light. (biofuelsdigest.com)
  • 2013). Microalgae products also exhibit elevated fat content, with ranges from 1.5-9.3%, and high levels of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, fibers and other bioactive compounds (Van Iersel and Flammini, 2010). (umn.edu)
  • sustainable
  • Dartmouth scientists have created a more sustainable feed for aquaculture by using a marine microalga co-product as a feed ingredient. (phys.org)
  • Taken together, these technologies can allow microalgae to become competitive in the sustainable energy landscape - particularly to produce complex, high-value molecules. (rsc.org)
  • Chisti Y (2006) Microalgae as Sustainable Cell Factories. (springer.com)
  • According to the company, the new, natural ingredient is derived from a sustainable and renewable source: the marine water microalgae Isochrysis galbana var T.ISO. (happi.com)
  • bioreactor
  • Studies have estimated main factors in the success of a microalgae hatchery system as the dimensions of the container/bioreactor where microalgae is cultured, exposure to light/irradiation and concentration of cells within the reactor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Crude
  • Various forms of microalgae that have been evaluated as feed supplements demonstrated crude protein levels ranging from 14-38.2%, which at its maximum level, is almost 4.5 times the amount of crude protein in various corn products (Lum et al. (umn.edu)
  • photosynthetic
  • Microalgae are single-cell plants that comprise nature's smallest and most efficient photosynthetic engines: all they need to thrive is water, light, and air. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Microalgae are characterized as high rate of cell growth with superior photosynthetic efficiency and can be grown in brackish or wastewater on non-arable land. (springer.com)
  • bacteria
  • The synthesised oxygen during this process can be implemented to support the AS bacteria that leads to the microalgae activated sludge (MAAS) process. (diva-portal.org)
  • carbon
  • In addition to this, microalgae can be cultured without needing agricultural land or ecological landscapes and offer opportunities for mitigating global climate change, allowing waste water treatment and carbon dioxide sequestration. (frontiersin.org)
  • scientists
  • The book, useful and needed both by PhD students and already experienced scientists, should be found/ accessible in every (significant) faculty, research institute or pilot plant dealing with microalgae! (springer.com)
  • main
  • Biofilm formation is a widely observed characteristic of microalgae, which is considered as one of the main problems of tubular, flat-plate and other suspended photobioreactors. (phys.org)
  • strain
  • We highlight the opportunities emerging from the current progress in the application of genome editing in microalgae for accelerating the strain improvement program. (frontiersin.org)
