Special Issue "Algae Based Technologies"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2014)
The desire to increase biofuels production renewed the interest in algal biomass. Tremendous efforts were invested in many areas, including strain selection and development, cultivation techniques and facilities, harvest, downstream processing, product development, techno-economic analysis, life cycle analysis, energy policy, etc. In recent years, algae related research has been expanded way beyond biofuels, and is taking new directions. The interest in using algae as a vehicle for production of chemicals, nutraceuticals, medicine, foods, feeds, pigments, etc., and as a means of waste utilization and management, is rapidly growing. This special issue is to solicit high quality and original research contributions and critical reviews on all aspects of algae based technologies.
