Alginate immobilization of Spirulina platensis for wastewater treatment.

Abstract:

:Immobilization of cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis in sodium alginate (1.5 %) gave the best quality of bead and 15-16 beads were formed per mL of aqueous solution of alginate. The immobilized cells were used in a batch process for treatment of diluted sewage. After 8 days, 95 % of BOD5, 77 % of COD, 90 % of ammonia, and 94 % of TSS were removed.

  • Bioreactor operated production of lipase: castor oil hydrolysis using partially-purified lipase.

    abstract::A highly stable lipase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa KKA-5 was produced by batch cultivation technique employing shake flask and 5 L-bioreactor. The bioreactor was run at different airflow rates. Low airflow rates (1 and 3 L/min), did not lead to effective growth and lipase production. Growth increased by about one orde...
