Abstract

The feasibility of cultivating blue-green cynobacteria, spirulina platensis (Gomont) Geitler, in Sago factory wastewater for production of single cell protein (SCP) was investigated. Modified sago effluent (MSE) was developed by aerobic pre-treatment of filtered sago effluent (FSE) with commercial aerobic bacteria, Bak-Wira MP300. characterization of filtered sago effluent (FSE) and pre-treated sago effluent (MSE) showed that 75: 4: 1 of C:N:P ratio for MSE was most suitable for the growth of S. platensis. Batch cultivation of S. platensis in Zarrouk medium under different light illuminations, revealed that normal daylight illuminations generated the highest dry cell weight (DCW) at 3106 81mgL-1 compared to culture illuminated with cool white fluorescent bulb lightning under 12 hr alternate light/dark (1747 120mgL-1) and 24 hr continous light (2400 159mgL-1).
