Resumo

Since cultivations of Arthrospira platensis have a high water demand, it is necessary to develop treatment methods for reusing the exhausted medium that may prevent environmental problems and obtaining useful biomass. The exhausted Schlosser medium obtained from A. platensis batch cultivation in bench-scale mini-tanks was treated by varying concentrations of different coagulants, ferric chloride (6, 10, and 14 mg L-1) or ferric sulfate (15, 25, and 35 mg L-1) and powdered activated carbon (PAC, 30 and 50 mg L-1). Such treated effluent was restored with NaNO3 and reused in new cultivations of A. platensis performed in Erlenmeyer flasks. Reusing media through the cultivation of A. platensis showed satisfactory results, particularly in the medium treated with ferric chloride and PAC. The maximum cell concentration obtained in the flasks was 1093 mg L-1, which corresponded to the medium treated with ferric chloride (6 mg L-1) and PAC (30 mg L-1). This cellular growth was higher than in the medium treated with ferric sulfate and PAC, in which values of maximum cell concentration did not exceed 796 mg L-1. The cultures in the media after treatment did not modify the biomass composition. Thus, combined coagulation/adsorption processes, commonly used in water treatment processes, can be efficient and viable for treating exhausted medium of A. platensis, allowing the production of such biomass with the reduction of production cost and saving water.
