Title: Production of Biodiesel from Algae applied to Agricultural Wastewater Treatment
California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo students will grow algae from dairy wastewater in bench-scale bioreactors and determine algal lipid production rate. Results will be used to determine the feasibility of simultaneously producing biodiesel and managing nutrients from agricultural waste streams using high-rate algae wastewater treatment ponds.
