Abstract

In this work the effects of vinasse at various concentrations (1, 2.5, 5, 10 and 25%) on some growth parameters of Chlamydomonas reinhardii have been investigated. It was seen that it causes increments in both the content of photosynthetic pigments and the cell number of this species at low concentrations (1-5%), but decreased the cell number significantly at higher concentrations (above 10%) compared with a standard medium. In the light of these findings it has been discussed whether using vinasse for algal growth and so decreasing its polluting effect is useful or not.
