The growth conditions of two microalgae, Spirulina platensis and Nannochloropsis oculata, were tested under various light sources including white cold DDH GaAlAs LED, traditional fluorescent lamps and natural light cultures, with no difference found in the growth of biomass, indicating that white cold DDH GaAlAs LED could replace traditional fluorescent lamps, thus providing for large saving on electricity costs and preservation of cultural space. To date, the use of white cold DDH GaAlAs LEDs…

Enhanced biomass productivity of microalgae Nannochloropsis sp. in an airlift photobioreactor using low-frequency flashing light with blue LED

By using the blue LED lights, the designed, airlift photobioreactor increased cell growth by 70% compared to the growth of Nannochloropsis sp.

Aspects of Carbon Dioxide Mitigation by Nannochloropsis oculata Cultured in a Photobioreactor

This paper primarily presents on carbon dioxide mitigation by marine microalgae. Among the potential marine microalgae, Nannochloropsis oculata has been identified as a promising species which can be

Use of red and blue light-emitting diodes (LED) and fluorescent lamps to grow microalgae in a photobioreactor.

It is suggested that most advantageous production system may be to use a red light initially to produce the desired cell concentration, then switch to a blue light to increase cell size.

Two-stage culture method for optimized polysaccharide production in Spirulina platensis.

The two-stage culture method proposed can be successfully applied to achieve the goal of polysaccharide mass production, and the first stage focuses on rapidly increasing microalgal biomass.

Metabolic activity, the chemical composition of biomass and photosynthetic activity of Chlorella vulgaris under different light spectra in photobioreactors

The results point to the favorable influence of the far‐red on the metabolism of microalgae as well as three light sources for cultures of Chlorella vulgaris.

Replacement of sodium nitrate in Kosaric medium with urea for culture of Spirulina platensis

Spirulina platensis is an cyanobacteria, which is an important feed additives for human, animal and fishes. The major purpose of the present study was to optimize the production of S. platensis with

Potential of fresh POME as a growth medium in mass production of Arthrospira platensis

The prospects of utilizing fresh Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) as an alternative and inexpensive growth medium in Arthrospira platensis cultivation was evaluated in outdoor large scale cultivation



Photoacclimation of Chlorella vulgaris to Red Light from Light‐Emitting Diodes Leads to Autospore Release Following Each Cellular Division

Although the solid state LED light source altered the cell cycle behavior of C. vulgaris, it can be used as an effective light source for autotrophic growth and promises to advance the current state of algal photobioreactors due to their efficiency, smallness, reliability, long lifetime, and desirable light characteristics.

High‐density algal photobioreactors using light‐emitting diodes

A prototype PBR has been designed based on theoretical values of gas mass transfer requirements and light‐intensity requirement to support high‐density algal cultures for the 680 nm monochromatic red light from LED as a light source.

Application of light‐emitting diodes in bioreactors: Flashing light effects and energy economy in algal culture (Chlorella pyrenoidosa)

Use of flashing LEDs in indoor algal culture yielded a major gain in energy economy in comparison to luminescent light sources and showed reduction of the quantum requirement for oxygen evolution at defined frequencies.

Light‐emitting diodes for the illumination of algae in ecotoxicity testing

It could be shown that small‐scale construction of incubators using LEDs is possible and could be advantageous, especially for the illumination of algae in 96‐well microplate growth inhibition assays, and this was approached by demonstrating that growth of algae was similar with both illuminating devices.

Microscopic green algae and cyanobacteria in high-frequency intermittent light

The difference in the dynamics of the redox state of the plastoquinone pool is proposed to be responsible for the low photoinhibition rates observed in the intermittent light.
