Recovery of the microalgae from the culture medium has been claimed to contribute 20–30% of total cost of producing algal biomass. Many small-scale harvesting and dewatering processes have proven to be very species specific, expensive and not readily scalable.

A single best method, universal process, or a series of processes is yet to be identified that will be suitable in all situations and for all microalgae species.
