Document Type: Journal Paper


Engineering design of cultures of algae for effective waste treatment or reclamation is dependent on the algal light conversion efficiency, which is highly variable and strongly influenced by the environment. This paper presents results of studies of light conversion by sewage-grown algae as a function of physicochemical environment.
