"Algae are mostly aquatic fast-developing microorganisms, well known for their high photosynthetic capacities. In the past years, the multi-functional beneficial qualities of their various strains and components have attracted researchers and industries’ growing interest. Indicatively, microalgae are used in the livestock and fish food sectors, as human dietary supplements, and in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
Algae reproduction relies on photosynthesis employing light, water, CO2 as well as nutrients (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Sulphur). Its reproductive cycle lasts 2 months in total and it enables daily harvesting of small algal biomass volumes, after the first 2 weeks of systematic cultivation. The main reproductive systems employed are the open ponds (e.g. lakes) or the closed systems (photobioreactor – PBR). Open ponds are more cost-effective to deploy and conserve. On top of that, they are open-air and exposed to various contaminating ...
