I'm still new to this site and I'm very interested to understand things which is partly why I like this site so much. I've got a couple of very simple questions. How does algae die and what is the process? What happens to the chlorophyll? Does the chlorine react with the strong + charge of the cell wall proteins that keeps the single cells from clumping up when they're alive or is there some other mechanism? The more I read about the killing of algae and filtration the more questions I have. So I thought I'd start at the beginning (or maybe the end from the algae cell's point of view).
Thanks in advance.
PS If I'm in the wrong area please do move this to the right forum area.
