Algal Reactor Design Based on Comprehensive Modeling of Light and Mixing 43 Fig.  31 (in gDW E−1 h−1) as a function of time in h for algal cultures grown in sealed nutrient-replete medium with carbonate added. Cultures of environmental sample ( red), Monoraphidium sp. ( blue) and Dunaliella primolecta ( green) grown with 3 mM nitrate as described in Holland et al. (2011). 3 The Ragonese and Williams Model As shown above and as stated by Ragonese and Williams (1968), algal biomass production is proportional to the amount of light absorbed by the culture.

The concept of light as a continuously fed substrate brings about a different understanding of such lipid accumulation. 3). Upon determination of the culture autotrophic and nitrogen yields under nutrient-replete conditions, the nitrogen flux is lowered gradually until lipid production is achieved—at the cost of a lowered overall dry-weight productivity. This chapter details the methodology to achieve continuous autotrophic lipid production. 1 Biomass and Lipid Production Estimates Algal lipids have been widely promulgated as a precursor to renewable transportation biofuels.
