Abstract
This project aims at improving algal biomass production in wastewater treatment systems and study biogas production from algal biomass digestion. The hypothesis is that in wastewater treatment systems an increase algal biomass production in justified to exploit biomass energy potential through anaerobic digestion, because this is a very well known process and full scale infraestructure exist. Specific objectives are: improve algal biomass production by CO2 injection, improve production through efficient separation of biomass, determine the potential for biogas production from algal biomass, develop a numerical simulation model for biomass producing systems and analyze the technical, economic and environmental issues of the system. The project is developed by Grupo de Ingeniería y Microbiología del Medio Ambiente de la Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya (GEMMA-UPC). For the project there will be two types of experimental facilities: high rate algal ponds and a photobioreactor.
