- Pp. 332-351 (20)Daissy Lorena Restrepo Serna, Juan Carlos Higuita Vásquez and Carlos Ariel Cardona Alzate
A description of the importance of microalgae at industrial level and especially the case of Chlorella vulgaris are presented in this chapter. The cost and some existing technologies for microalgae oil production were analyzed. Furthermore, some of these technologies were selected for the design of microalgae oil production process using the simulation software Aspen Plus.
