Drying Kinetics of Microalgae for Selection of Drying Method
Short Introductive summary
Drying technology is critical for algae from consideration of long term storage, reduction of transportation cost, compensation of seasonal productivity variation etc. Drying poses a major economic constraint in processing cost of microalgae. Drying is very energy intensive unit operation & most challenging aspect in algae drying is selection of right drying process technology. Algal system is observed to be temperature sensitive and hence appropriate drying condition, like drying temperature, time cycle are critical from drying process point of view. This work aims to develop multi-stage algae drying process, keeping in mind the heat sensitivity & drying kinetics aspect of algal slurry.
