Table 1 Carbohydrate and lipid production by Chlorella vulgaris ESP-31 mutants grown in simulated flue gas and high temperature

From: Isolation and characterization of Chlorella sp. mutants with enhanced thermo- and CO2 tolerances for CO2 sequestration and utilization of flue gases

Strain Carbohydrate content (%)a Carbohydrate production (mg/L)b Lipid content (%)c Lipid production (mg/L)d

  1. Each datum indicates the mean ± SD from two experiments
  2. P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 were statistically significant as compared with Chlorella vulgaris ESP-31 wild type
  3. –, no data because the cells were dead
  4. aCarbohydrate content (%) = (carbohydrate dry weight/biomass dry weight) × 100%
  5. bCarbohydrate production (mg/L) = (Max. biomass production × carbohydrate content)/100 × 1000
  6. cLipid content (%) = (lipid dry weight/biomass dry weight) × 100%
  7. dLipid production (mg/L) = (Max. biomass production × lipid content)/100 × 1000
