Highlights •Microalgae granulation was accelerated under intermittent aeration even at low UAV.•MG completion was slightly delayed at low UAV with enhanced biomass accumulation.•Energy input for MG completion of single-cell microalgae reduced 14.70% at low UAV.•Microalgae mitigated the deterioration of nutrient performance at low UAV.•LB- or TB-EPS proportion is critical for MG formation and maintenance.
