Algae cultivation in flat panel reactors compared to tubular glass PBRs
Operating Principles - Advantages and Disadvantages - Application Scenarios

Significantly higher productivity, good product quality and better predictability within production. These are the main arguments for cultivating algae in closed photobioreactors (PBR).

If you plan to cultivate algae in a closed PBR, the use of a flat panel reactor appears as an interesting approach: This method offers high light absorption due to the way it is constructed and this results in rapid algae growth. However, in industrial operation of such a flat panel reactor, there are numerous influencing factors that can have a negative effect on productivity.

Read our guide and find out how algae cultivation in flat panel reactors works. Understand the advantages and disadvantages of this cultivation method and learn in which situations algae cultivation in flat panel reactors is reasonable and in which not.

If you would like to determine whether your intended cultivation should be inserted into a flat panel reactor or a different closed cultivation system, this guide will offer helpful insights. It presents the entire range of decision relevant parameters. Through this you are provided with a complete picture of the topic.
Among other things, our guide will answer the following:
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of algae cultivation in flat panel reactors?
