Development of photobioreactors for anoxygenic production of hydrogen by purple bacteria
In: Jiri Klemes (Eds.): Chemical Engineering Transactions, 363-366
Two main concepts of photobioreactors are considered: flat panel reactor and tubular reactor. Development and evaluation of both reactor types is carried out at small and large scale at at RWTH Aachen University and by Technogrow. The work at RWTH led to a preliminary conceptual design for a flat panel photobioreactor and Technogrow developed the nearly horizontal tubular reactor.
