The challenge of this work is to integrate microalgae production and anaerobic digestion of vegetable feedstocks, agricultural and livestocks wastes applying a “biorefinery” approach. The Anaerobic Digester Effluent (ADE), which is the wastewater rich in nutrients produced by anaerobic digestion of organic matter, could be used as culture medium for microalgae cultivation reducing its environmental impact. The produced algal biomass could be used for a set of biotechnological applications including, fine chemicals and biomaterials extraction (by means “green technologies”), biodiesel, biogas (by microbiological process), syngas and biochar production (by thermochemical process), or a combination of them. The innovative and main purpose of this work is to investigate this integration (so called BIOREFINERY”) not at laboratory scale, where some studies have already been done, but to work at pilot scale.
