|Citation:||Lee, Y.-K. (1997). Commercial production of microalgae in the Asia-Pacific rim. Journal of Applied Phycology 9 (5) : 403-411. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1023/A:1007900423275|
|Abstract:||There are around 110 commercial producers of microalgae in the Asia-Pacific region, with annual production capacity ranging from 3 to 500 T. About nine-tenth of the algal cultivation plants are located in Asia. The commercially cultivated microalgae include Chlorella, Spirulina, Dunaliella, Nannochloris, Nitzschia, Crypthecodinium, Schizochytrium, Tetraselmis, Skeletonema, Isochrysis and Chaetoceros. Most of the commercially produced algal biomass is being marketed as health food, in the forms of tablets and capsules. Algae and their extract are also included in noodles, wine, beverages, breakfast cereals and cosmetics.|
