Algae-based Wastewater Treatment

Treatment or remediation of wastewater using algae is called phycoremediation. There are two different systems of algae-based wastewater treatment. They are Waste Stabilization Pond Systems (WSPs) and High Rate Algal Ponds (HRAP), both of which are secondary treatment methods. In the first type, wastewater treatment is achieved by mutualistic growth of microalgae and heterotrophic bacteria. […]

Paddlewheels and their Role in Algae Fuels

Open ponds, typically raceway ponds in which algae are grown, require some form of mixing to maintain cells in suspension, to prevent thermal stratification, and to disperse nutrients. Hence, for a proper mixing of the ponds, paddle wheels are used. Paddlewheels consist of simple, partial depth blades and high-speed rotors. With paddlewheels providing the flow, […]

Photoautotrophic Cultivation- Open ponds Vs Photobioreactors.

Algae-cultivation on a whole faces several challenges. There are two methods of growing algae –  one is the photoautotrophic cultivation  and the other is the  heterotrophic cultivation. Photoautotrophic cultivation as the name suggests is cultivating algae in the presence of light – the light can be either freely available sunlight or artificially provided light.  Heterotrophic […]

Algae Fuels- Emerging Opportunity for India

When algae are grown they should be provided the best possible conditions to achieve their growth potential. I was earlier a bit skeptical about growing algae in open-ponds.
