The use of microalgae in integrated gas purification processes has taken a special interest in recent years, mainly due to its ability to capture CO2. These applications involve the generation of biomass that can be used to obtain bioproducts and/or bioenergy.
However, the development of these processes requires an improvement in the cell rupture and biocompounds extraction methods. The aim of this study was to evaluate a method for obtaining proteins and free amino acids (FAN) from Chlorella vulgaris.
