Abstract

Drying is one of the most important process in the cultivation of microalgae. Performance of drying depends on appropriate drying methods. This study aimed (1) to determine the effect of different drying methods on the Chlorella sp., Neochloris conjuncta, and Botryococcus braunii strains and (2) to identify the most suitable model for drying methods.
