- ... Microalgae are a sustainable alternative for production of valuable omega −3 fatty acids (FAs), but high production costs limit commercialization. Utilization of waste as a nutrient source increases the economics of the cultivation process. Additionally, using mixed algal cultures instead of monocultures makes the cultivation process more flexible and can increase biomass and lipid production. Her ...

- ... Microalgae have high potential as organisms that can be used for biodiesel production because they can accumulate high amounts of lipids in a similar manner to oleaginous plants. However, the economic feasibility of their lipid production is still in question. Possible methods of improving that feasibility involve a reduction in cultivation costs using effluents along with an increase in lipid pro ...
