- ... Alkaline flocculation could be an attractive microalgae harvesting method, because it is low-cost, low energy consumption, and non-toxic to microalgal cells, and the high pH effectively sterilizes the microalgal biomass as well as the process water. In this paper, the mechanism of alkaline flocculation process and the difference between the two strains marine diatom Chaetoceros muelleri #862 and f ...
