Free webinar: An online virtual tool to simulate microalgae cultivation in raceway reactors

Monday, 27th November 2023, 15:00 – 16:15 CET
Free admission

Open cultivation systems, such as raceway ponds, offer a low-cost investment and operation for microalgae cultivation. However, they present a lower biomass productivity when compared to other cultivation systems.

What are the factors that influence the growth rate in raceway reactors? How can they be estimated to better understand the system’s behaviour and optimise microalgae cultivation?

About the webinar

The webinar will share the latest know-how on the factors that influence microalgae production in raceway ponds will be shared. With this knowledge, participants will be introduced to a new online simulation tool, designed to help better understand microalgae production in these systems.

The simulation tool allows setting the starting parameters for microalgae cultivation, solves the process dynamics, and simulates the system production based on the given configuration. It can also compare manual operation and automatic control of raceway reactors, as well as evaluate different microalgae strain production for any geographical location in the world. As such, it can help workers in microalgae production, but can also be used to introduce people to microalgae production and teach them about the behaviour of raceway bioreactors.    


For who is the webinar

Microalgae and data modelling enthusiasts, as well as non-specialists who want to learn how to use the simulation tool, are welcome to register for the free webinar.


Registration for the webinar has closed. A recording of the webinar will be made available afterwards.
