dc.description.abstractMicroalgae are being developed as a source of fuels and/or chemicals. A processing challenge is dewatering the algae. Electrical approaches to dewatering include exploiting electrophoresis or electroflocculation. The reported experiments show that electrophoresis does occur but is complicated by the effects of the fluid motion. It appears that the coupling of the algal cell and the fluid can be sufficiently strong such that fluid motion effects can influence or dominate behavior. Electroflocculation appears to be a robust process. It does, however, inherently leave electrically induced trace metal flocculants in the dewatered algae.en
