Shear-enhanced membrane filtration of model and real microalgae extracts for lipids recovery in biorefinery context

In this work, the hydrodynamic effects of rotating disk filtration (with maximum shear rates of 16000s-1 and 66000s-1) were evaluated and compared with the crossflow filtration (16000s-1) in the recovery of lipids from a model solution that simulates the characteristics of Parachlorella kessleri aqueous extracts. Four polymeric membranes were tested. The PAN 500 kDa membrane along with the rotating disk filtration presented the best performances for lipid concentration and coalescence. The rotating disk filtration was tested with real microalgae extracts, confirming the total lipid retention and the limited membrane fouling.
