Microalgae cultivation

An important way to decrease the costs of microalgae production is by increasing the production rate of microalgae biomass and products in a photobioreactor. This can be done either by optimizing the operation strategy of the bioreactor or improving the design of the photobioreactor. Both will have implication for scale up. The productivity gain therefore must be carefully balanced with potential higher (energy) costs of reactor construction and operation.
