Why is it important?

This research provides original results on the growth optimization of an emerging microalgae species with potential for the treatment of high organic load wastewater and bioenergy production. The comparison of biomass productivity, the CO2 fixation rate, and energy content under different culture conditions provides valuable insights into the cultivation of G. pectorale. The use of ANN-based regression modeling for the prediction of activation energy at different heating rates is a novel approach that adds to the knowledge in the field. These findings could contribute to the development of effective strategies for the growth and utilization of microalgae in bioenergy production and wastewater treatment. These unique aspects of the research may attract readers interested in sustainable biotechnology and bioenergy production, and the potential of algae for wastewater treatment.
