Abstract

Microalgae cultivation for biofuel conversion is widely treated in literature as it could allow reducing fossil fuel consumptions. One of the challenges of this technology is related to the high power and cost requirements for the harvesting and dewatering steps. The influence of dewatering process can be substantially reduced when considering hydrothermal gasification (HTG). This technology, which have already been demonstrated and tested, ...
