Development of microalgal biofilm for wastewater remediation: from mechanism to practical application

The high cost of biomass harvesting by centrifugation and high safety risks of collected algal biomass by chemical flocculation are serious problems jeopardizing the industrial implementation of microalgae bio-products. Recently, microalgae immobilization is regarded as a promising technology with the potential of lowering biomass production cost and ensuring biomass safety in the industry. Therefore, microalgal biofilms, an effective and affordable way to immobilize algal cells, are emerging into the limelight. This paper summarizes the progress achieved in biofilm system design and biofilm formation mechanisms.
