    Characterization of algal and microbial community dynamics in a wastewater photo-bioreactor using indigenous algae from lake mälaren2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Microalgae grown in photo-bioreactors can be a valuable source for biomass especially when combined with the treatment of wastewater. While most published research has been studying pure cultures, consortia of algae and bacteria from the wastewater have more complex dynamics affecting both the biomass production and pollutant removal. In this paper we investigate dynamics of algal and bacterial communities in mixed culture photo-bioreactors using chlorophyll and real-time PCR analysis. Wastewater photo-bioreactors were inoculated with water from a nearby lake to add native algae species. The results indicated a decline in bacterial 16S rDNA copy numbers before algae started to multiply. The photo-bioreactors inoculated with lake algae produced more biomass and grew faster than the algae originating only from wastewater. The reactors were effective in removing ammonia from the wastewater which seemed work to mostly through nitrification thus causing an increase in nitrate concentration. There was also an increase in Cr, Co and Ni ion concentrations during the experiment suggesting they may have moved from organic complexes to the water phase as free ions.

    Characterization of algal and microbial community growth in a wastewater treating batch photo-bioreactor inoculated with lake water2015In: Algal Research, ISSN 2211-9264, Vol. 11, no Sept, p. 421-427Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Microalgae grown in photo-bioreactors can be a valuable source of biomass, especially when combined with wastewater treatment. While most published research has studied pure cultures, the consortia of algae and bacteria from wastewater have more complex community dynamics which affect both the biomass production and pollutant removal. In this paper we investigate the dynamics of algal and bacterial growth in wastewater treating batch photo-bioreactors. The photo-bioreactors were inoculated with water from a nearby lake. Lake water was obtained in August, November and December in order to add native algal species and study the effects of the season. The photo-bioreactors inoculated with lake water obtained in August and November produced more biomass and grew faster than those that only contained the algae from wastewater. The results indicated a rapid decline in bacterial abundance before algae began to multiply in reactors supplemented with lake water in November and December. The reactors were also successful in removing nitrogen and phosphorous from wastewater.

    Inhibition of nitrification in municipal wastewater treating photobioreactors: effect on algal growth and nutrient uptake2016In: Bioresource Technology, ISSN 0960-8524, E-ISSN 1873-2976, Vol. 202, p. 238-243Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The effect of inhibiting nitrification on algal growth and nutrient uptake was studied in photobioreactors treating municipal wastewater. As previous studies have indicated that algae prefer certain nitrogen species to others, and because nitrifying bacteria are inhibited by microalgae, it is important to shed more light on these interactions. In this study allylthiourea (ATU) was used to inhibit nitrification in wastewater-treating photobioreactors. The nitrification-inhibited reactors were compared to control reactors with no ATU added.

    Microalgae had higher growth in the inhibited reactors, resulting in a higher chlorophyll a concentration. The species mix also differed, with Chlorella and Scenedesmus being the dominant genera in the control reactors and Cryptomonas and Chlorella dominating in the inhibited reactors. The nitrogen speciation in the reactors after 8 days incubation was also different in the two setups, with N existing mostly as NH4-N in the inhibited reactors and as NO3-N in the control reactors.

    Effect of lake water on algal biomass and microbial community structure in municipal wastewater based lab-scale photobioreactors2015In: Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology, ISSN 0175-7598, E-ISSN 1432-0614, Vol. 99, no 21, p. 6537-6549Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Photobioreactors are a novel environmental technology that can produce biofuels with the simultaneous removal of nutrients and pollutants from wastewaters. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the lake water addition to the production of algal biomass, and phylogenetic and functional structure of the algal and bacterial communities in the lab-scale bioreactors treating municipal wastewater.

    The lake water addition has significant benefit to the overall algal biomass growth and nutrient reduction in the reactors with wastewater and lake water (ratio 70/30 v/v). The metagenome based survey showed that the most abundant algal phylum in these reactors was Chlorophyta with Scenedesmus being the most prominent genus. The most abundant bacterial phyla were Proteobacteria and Bacteroidetes with most dominant families being Sphingobacteriaceae, Cytophagaceae, Flavobacteriaceae, Comamonadaceae, Planctomycetaceae, Nocardiaceae and Nostocaceae. These photobioreactors were also effective in reducing the overall amount of pathogens in wastewater compared to reactors with wastewater/tap water mixture. Functional analysis of the photobioreactor metagenomes revealed an increase in relative abundance genes related to photosynthesis, synthesis of vitamins important for auxotrophic algae, and decrease in virulence and nitrogen metabolism subsystems in lake water reactors.

    Comparative analysis of the metagenomes extracted from wastewater treating photobioreactorsManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The metagenomes of lab-scale municipal wastewater treating batch photobioreactors were studied with a focus on nitrogen metabolism, pathogen abundance and antibiotic resistance genes. Previous studies based on the dataset showed that in general, as algae growth in the reactors increased, nitrogen metabolism and virulence genes decreased. With this study, a more detailed view of these gene groups is presented.
