Abstract

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the ammonium nitrogen removal performance of algae culture Chlorella vulgaris in a novel immobilized photobioreactor system under different operating conditions and to determine the biokinetic coefficients using the Stover-Kincannon model.
