Microalgae cultivation in different pH, Temperature and Media

Biotechnology advances in Algal Biofuel, one of the promising field for near future! This global warming due to our urgent necessary uses for all aspects of life, whether it is for living or just for recreation, we use fossils as our fuels. Even all your kitchen stuffs, from utensils to plastic containers... from LPG gas to your perfumes, medicines and cosmetics, all and all, directly or indirectly during their processings, uses this carbon emitting FOSSILS FUELS.
On the other opposite hand, we could use biofuel like Microalgae and various others.

Microalgae cultivation in different pH, Temperature and Media

  1. 1. Microalgae cultivation in different 𝒑 𝑯 , temperature and media for lipid production Dakshayini Jayarama Reddy , Ravi kumar Krishnappa & Girisha Sirangala Thimmappa, Presentation based on Lipid production for Bio-fuel generation related research International Journal of Life Sciences 8 ( 2 ) : 2 0 1 4 ; 1 3 - 1 7 Bir Bahadur Thapa( M.Sc. I sem) Central Department of Botany Tribhuwan University Nepal
  2. 2. 1. Introduction - What is algae, biofuel and fossil-fuel in very simple concept ? - Why we should focus on biofuel ? - How is that possible ? 2. How researchers carried their research ? & 3. What they concluded from research ?
  3. 3. Introduction : What ? Why ? How ?  Algae – simple plant like photosynthesizing organisms # Microalgae (i.e., unicellular) – in micrometres. # Macro-algae (i.e., Seaweeds) – in inches.  Bio-fuels – fuels obtained from living plants!! - are carbon neutrals - renewable  Fossil-fuels – from dead’s of millions years ago!!!
