Photobioreactors and Oxycombustion: A Mini-Review on the Process Integration

Severo IA, Deprá MC, Zepka LQ and Jacob-Lopes E

Some strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere, especially carbon dioxide, have been gaining growing attention by researchers with the aim of develop new technologies that are energy-efficient and economically viable in industrial processes. In this sense, the aim of this paper is to provide a mini review of industrial systems of oxycombustion integrated in microalgal photobioreactors. Divided into four distinct topics, the paper discusses issues related to biological carbon capture and utilization, the elements of oxycombustion technology, the reuse of exhaust gases from photobioreactor and the process integration, summarizing a range of useful strategies directed to the industrial sustainable development.
