A novel flat panel photobioreactor prototype with bulk liquid flow driven by an external airlift was designed, modeled, and experimentally characterized for the purpose of developing scalable industrial photobioreactors. Baffles were built inside the flat panel part of the reactor, directing the liquid bulk flow in a serpentine way, and the external airlift(More)
To develop dimensionless equations to describe microalgal growth in planar photobioreactor or raceway pond systems that are generalized to all phototrophic species and reactor length scales. Expressions for biomass growth and mean light intensity within a nutrient replete, well-mixed, phototrophic cell culture in a planar cultivation system were developed(More)
