Chemical composition of sewage-grown Spirulina platensis

, : Chemical composition of sewage-grown Spirulina platensis. Experientia 38(12): 14-38

Spirulina platensis, grown in an outdoor pilot production unit on a medium containing raw sewage supplemented with NaHCO3 and NaNO3 or urea supplying nitrogen. The protein content, 50 to 55 and 35 to 40% respectively, was less than for algae grown in synthetic medium, 55 to 60%. Carbohydrate was 16 to 20, lipid 6 to 9 and nucleic acids 3.3 to 5.2%.
