Previous work demonstrated that a mixture of NH(4)Cl and KNO(3) as nitrogen source was beneficial to fed-batch Arthrospira (Spirulina) platensis cultivation, in terms of either lower costs or higher cell concentration. On the basis of those results, this study focused on the use of a cheaper nitrogen source mixture, namely (NH(4))(2)SO(4) plus NaNO(3), varying the ammonium feeding time (T=7-15days), either controlling the pH by CO(2) addition or not. A. platensis was cultivated in mini-tanks at 30°C, 156μmolphotonsm(-2)s(-1), and starting cell concentration of 400mgL(-1), on a modified Schlösser medium. T=13days under pH control were selected as optimum conditions, ensuring the best results in terms of biomass production (maximum cell concentration of 2911mgL(-1), cell productivity of 179mgL(-1)d(-1) and specific growth rate of 0.77d(-1)) and satisfactory protein and lipid contents (around 30% each).
