The exploitation of aquatic biomass for energetic purpose is a promising field of research. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a deeply investigated microalga able to convert sunlight into chemical energy by indirect photolysis under specific culture conditions, allowing the production of a hydrogen rich biogas and algal biomass as side-product. Besides the hydrogen production, a valorisation of “spent” side-products is a key point for the process optimization, for the maximization of process energetic yield and the reduction of photo-biogenic hydrogen prices. The aim of this work was to investigate the potential conversion of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii exhaust biomass to bio-diesel, pyrolysis oil and nitrogen rich charcoal (bio-char).

Abstract

The exploitation of aquatic biomass for energetic purpose is a promising field of research. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a deeply investigated microalga able to convert sunlight into chemical energy by indirect photolysis under specific culture conditions, allowing the production of a hydrogen rich biogas and algal biomass as side-product. Besides the hydrogen production, a valorisation of “spent” side-products is a key point for the process optimization, for the maximization of process energetic yield and the reduction of photo-biogenic hydrogen prices. The aim of this work was to investigate the potential conversion of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii exhaust biomass to bio-diesel, pyrolysis oil and nitrogen rich charcoal (bio-char).
