Light affects microalgae biochemically and is essential for them to develop and grow. Through evolution different species has developed advanced and complex photosystems, properties and functions. Technology allows us to improve and enhance microalgaes in many ways. Produced inside photobioreactor systems (PBR), light is the most important growth element. Light physical parameters change and requires understanding and adaptation, to be able to apply light correctly and efficient.
With light we can:
- Increase biomass production and quality
- Increase nutrition profile and high value compounds
- Improve productivity environment
- Reduce need for cooling
- Reduce labor
With today’s science, experience, materials, and technology, we can make products that achieves above advantages, while also increasing energy efficacy and life hours, in total of value larger than the investment cost. This allows us to improve payback time on investment and achieve positive techno economy.
