Breaking Green Algae Chlorella Sp. Cells By Applying Mechanical Techniques
Two mechanical techniques (ultra-sonication and ultra-homogenization) were usedin this study for estimation of efficiency of microalgaeChlorella sp. cell breaking. The experiments were performed using non-processed and treated using frost algae suspension (operation duration from 1 to 20 minutes). The highest cell breaking efficiency (50.76 %) was estimated with ultrasonic processor applying treated using frost algae suspension by keeping fixed temperature after 20 minutes.The highest possitive disruptive effect using ultra-homogenizer was 37.55 %. Suspension pre-treatment using frost enables increasing of breaking efficiency till9 %.
