The technology of microalgal culturing

  title={The technology of microalgal culturing},
  author={Niels Thomas Eriksen},
  journal={Biotechnology Letters},
This review outlines the current status and recent developments in the technology of microalgal culturing in enclosed photobioreactors. Light distribution and mixing are the primary variables that affect productivities of photoautotrophic cultures and have strong impacts on photobioreactor designs. Process monitoring and control, physiological engineering, and heterotrophic microalgae are additional aspects of microalgal culturing, which have gained considerable attention in recent years.
