This study investigates the modification of UV-A radiation for enhancing the growth rate of Synechococcus species in a simulated photobioreactor made of UV-stabilized polycarbonate (PC) plates. Uvitex OB as was dissolved in a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-based resin and the mixture was applied as a coating to shift the UV-A radiation to photosynthetically active radiation (PAR). The feasibility of applying the Uvitex OB in a PMMA-based resin, which was used as fluorescent layer to shift UV… CONTINUE READING
