Table 1 Final biomass concentration, cell density and cell mass, and biomass productivity of Chlorella sorokiniana SDEC-18 grown in BG11 and in seawater supplemented with different volume percentages (1, 3, 5, 8, and 15%) of anaerobically digested effluent from kitchen waste

From: Lipid productivity in limnetic Chlorella is doubled by seawater added with anaerobically digested effluent from kitchen waste
