MICROALBAC: New strategies for the integration of microalgae-bacteria consortium in small size urban wastewater treatment plants

Research project with reference: RTC-2015-3245-5, coordinated by the company FACSA, corresponding to the call 2015, within the State Program of Research, Development and Innovation Oriented Challenges of the Society under the National Plan for Scientific Research and Technological Innovation 2013-2016 (Collaboration Challenges 2015).

The MICROALBAC project aims to integrate the cultivation of microalgae in conventional treatment plants wastewater to reduce energy costs oxygenation systems and agitation of aerobic reactors, as well as the revaluation of "activated sludge" microalgae / bacteria through their use as fertilizers and biogas production as co-substrate.
