Resum
Microalgae have recently drawn attention as a potential resource for biofuels generation. In the short term, anaerobic digestion seems the most viable downstream process. Still, microalgae cell wall restrains the hydrolysis, hampering the methane production potential. This work aimed at improving the anaerobic biodegradability of microalgae through different pretreatment methods: microwave, low temperature and high temperature. For the microwave pretreatment, the specific energy was the main par...
