Optimization of spray drying for Chlorella vulgaris by using RSM methodology and maltodextrin

Polat, Derya Genc
Mert, Behiç
In this study, Chlorella vulgaris biomass, which was cultivated in pilot-scale tubular photobioreactor biomass was encapsulated by using spray dryer (SD) and response surface I-optimal methods. The independent variables were SD inlet temperature (170-190 degrees C), maltodextrin (25-75%, w/w, in dm), and C. vulgaris biomass (25-75%, w/w, in dm). The amount of pigments (total carotenoid, chlorophyll-a), crude protein, physico-chemical (moisture content and water activity), color properties (L*, a*, b*, C*, and hue angle), particle-size distribution, and drying efficiencies of encapsulated samples were determined. The moisture (1.42-7.18 g/100 g), total carotenoid (0.91-1.91 mg/g), and chlorophyll-a (2.48-5.84 mg/g) contents were modeled significantly (p < .05). It was observed that the size and coalescence tendencies of samples were affected by used maltodextrin ratio. According to the results of this study, it is important to determine the SD process conditions and the maltodextrin amount considering the aimed applications, such as coloring agent in confectionery, beverage, and/or dairy technologies. Novelty impact statement C. vulgaris biomass was encapsulated by using spray-drying and RSM I-optimal methods. The effect of spray-dryer inlet temperature,and ratio of algal biomass and maltodextrin were investigated. Total carotenoid, chlorophyll-a and moisture contents were modeled significantly.


Investigation of adsorption of pesticides by organo-zeolite from wastewater
Lüle, Güzide Meltem; Atalay, M Ümit; Özbayoğlu, Gülhan; Department of Mining Engineering (2011)
The aim of this study was to determine the adsorption capacity of activated carbon and organo-zeolites for removal of pesticides in water. In order to prepare organo-zeolite, two kinds of cationic surfactants, namely, hexadecyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (HTAB) and dodecyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (DTAB) were used. Adsorption studies of cationic surfactant on zeolite were investigated in respect to initial concentration of cationic surfactant, time, and temperature. It has been found that the best fitted is...
Optimising clarification of carrot juice by bacterial crude pectinase
Uzuner, Sibel; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz (2015-12-01)
This study was undertaken to search for potential use of crude bacterial pectinase enzyme produced from Bacillus subtilis grown on hazelnut shell hydrolysate in clarification of carrot juice and to optimize the enzyme load, pH and time using the Box-Behnken response surface methodology (RSM). The carrot juice was treated with the crude pectinase enzyme (5.60 U mL(-1)) at different concentrations (0.1-0.5%), pH (4-7), and time (2-6 h). The obtained enzyme was also compared with commercial fungal pectinase at...
Comparison of microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation eligibility using sporosarcina pasteurii and bacillus licheniformis on two different sands
Sarıçiçek, Yılmaz Emre; Pekcan, Onur; Gözen, Ayşe Gül (Informa UK Limited, 2019-01-02)
The use of biological means for ground improvement have become popular, which generally works through the process called microbially-induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICP). Many studies indicate successful application of MICP based improvement with multiple bacteria and on several soils. Given the proven performance of MICP, this study aims to examine the MICP process by comparing the calcium carbonate precipitation ability of widely studied bacteria, i.e., Sporosarcina pasteurii and relatively unde...
Determination of metabolic bottlenecks using reaction engineering principles in serine alkaline protease production by recombinant bacillus sp.
Telli, İlkin Ece; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2004)
In this study, firstly, bioprocess characteristics for Serine Alkaline Protease (SAP) production, using recombinant Bacillus subtilis carrying pHV1431::subC, were examined. The cell concentration, substrate concentration, SAP activity and SAP synthesis rate profiles demonstrated that the system reaches to a steady state in terms of cell growth and SAP synthesis between t=15-25 h, therefore, this time interval is appropriate to employ both metabolic flux analysis and metabolic control analysis, which apply s...
Evaluation of a compacted bentonite/sand seal for underground waste repository isolation
Akgün, Haluk; AKTÜRK, ÖZGÜR (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-06-01)
This study investigates the performance of an optimum compacted bentonite/sand mixture seal for the isolation of underground waste repositories. Engineering geological tests such as compaction, flow, swelling, mechanical and shear strength tests have been conducted to select an optimum mixture and to recommend a stable bentonite/sand seal length-to-radius ratio (L/a) as far as the factor of safety (F) is concerned. The results of the compaction permeameter tests led to a recommendation to select an optimum ...
