Abstract

Microalgae biomass has attracted much interest in recent years for production of food, bioactive compounds, pigments and biofuels. Effective cultivation is a prerequisite for fully exploiting the potential of microalgae biomass from lab to large-scale production. The main objective of this article is to comprehensively provide useful knowledge and information with regard to production technologies (open and closed systems) and the improvements currently being developed. This article presents essential cultivation mechanisms and parameters for microalgae production and increasing performance.
