Summary of "Microalgae-biorefinery with cascading resource recovery design associated to dairy wastewater treatment."

The potential of microalgae for the treatment of dairy wastewater (DWW) was studied by integrating with bioethanol production. At the end of treatment, organic carbon removal was observed to be 90% with simultaneous removal of nutrients. Biomass concentration increased from 3 day and reached to a maximum of 1.4 g L by the end of cycle. The biomolecular composition of microalgae comprised of 38% carbohydrates, 15% proteins and 22% lipids. Reducing sugars extracted from deoiled microalgae showed highest percentage of glucose (54.12%) than other monomers. The reducing sugars obtained were utilized for the production of bioethanol via yeast fermentation using Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This resulted in the production of ethanol (3G) upto 116.2 mg g with simultaneous decrease in reducing sugars upto 92 mg g. The results obtained indicate potential of microalgae to produce multiple biobased products in a biorefinery framework.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A non-taxonomic term for unicellular microscopic algae which are found in both freshwater and marine environments. Some authors consider DIATOMS; CYANOBACTERIA; HAPTOPHYTA; and DINOFLAGELLATES as part of microalgae, even though they are not algae.

An approach, process, or methodology which emphasizes credible evidence and the best available scientific knowledge, judiciously integrated to achieve the best possible outcomes in structural design. For example, the design of a new OUTPATIENT CLINIC might incorporate a review of published research on outpatient clinic design, decisions on similar past projects, along with interviews with staff and consumers.

Architecture, exterior and interior design, and construction of facilities other than hospitals, e.g., dental schools, medical schools, ambulatory care clinics, and specified units of health care facilities. The concept also includes architecture, design, and construction of specialized contained, controlled, or closed research environments including those of space labs and stations.

The architecture, functional design, and construction of hospitals.

The art and science of designing buildings and structures. More generally, it is the design of the total built environment, including town planning, urban design, and landscape architecture.
