History of Mine Drainage Impact on Lake Orijärvi Algal ...

The Cu (Pb, Zn) mine of Orijärvi (1757–1956) was the first mining operation in Finland where flotation techniques (1911–1955) were used to enrich ore. Large quantities of tailings were produced. The impacts of past mining activities on the aquatic ecosystem of nearby Lake Orijärvi were studied using a combination of paleolimnological methods (analysis of sedimentary

Biofuels from algae: challenges and potential

2022-1-5 · Algae efficiently use CO 2, and are responsible for more than 40% of the global carbon fixation, with the majority of this productivity coming from marine microalgae [14,15]. Algae can produce biomass very rapidly, with some species doubling in as few as 6 h, and many exhibiting two doublings per day [16,17].
