- ... Using wastewater to grow algae is probably the most promising route to reduce production costs associated with nutrients and water. In this study, a newly isolated facultative heterotrophic freshwater microalgae strain, Auxenochlorella protothecoides UMN280, was examined for algal growth, wastewater nutrient removal efficiency, and lipid accumulation in batch and semi-continuous cultivation with v ...
