Abstract [en]

To combine the abilities of lipids extraction and CO2 capture by algae + IL system, chlorella hydrolysis integrating CO2 removal by ILs ([bmim][BF4], [bmim]Cl and [amim]Cl) to extract lipids energy-efficiently was demonstrated in this study. The addition of CO2 to [bmim][BF4] can increase the lipids yield from 14.2% to 15.6%. The value of net energy gain increased from 10.4 to 35.9 with the CO2 addition to [bmim][BF4] because of the compensated CO2 capture energy in the algae extraction process.
