In this paper we predict and optimize the biomass surface productivity of microalgae in continuous culture under a constant light source. Surface biomass is identified as a key variable for assessing productivity: we provide both a mathematical and intuitive explanation. For reaching maximal productivities, biomass surface concentration must be such that growth at the culture bottom (assuming a planar geometry orthogonal to the light source) must be equal to respiration. Therefore the optimal… CONTINUE READING
