Extracting lipids and other products from algae.

May 07, 2016

It is early morning as most of family quietly sleeps...and my son begs for a television show before the sun comes up.   I am up early doing research and doing final edits on the Algae Research Supply Culturing Manual.  While researching lipids, I came across a good review article.  Many of the algae-curious have asked me for information on the cultivation of algae for lipid production.   Some people want to grow algae for biodiesel, others are curious about poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) like DHA and EPA.

This article is about extracting lipids and other high value metabolites.  It is from an Open Access journal site:
