    The focus of the productivity analysis was to determine production (biomass and lipid, CO2 and/or O2) rates and yields, as well as relevant consumption rates (COand/or O2 and glucose), in order to gain an understanding of the potential of mixotrophic growth for providing high biomass algal cultures as well as providing data to the techno-economic study. The chosen strains (Chlorella protothecoides and Euglena gracilis) were known to grow heterotrophically, which is important when assessing the potential of mixotrophic growth, and corresponded with two of the strains assessed for their ability to grown in waste waters (Section 3).
