Schott AG. Why tubular glass photobioreactors are best for algae production

This presentation will highlight the underlying reasons for a growing conviction for this technology amongst the algae industry. Possessing a large surface-to-volume ratio, that allow cultivations at high concentrations with high volumetric productivities, glass tubular systems present a solution for stable production with minimal maintenance. The glass components and couplings are food grade making algal products for human consumption and even pharma applications possible. As a highly productive system, inexpensive downstream processes and lifetimes of over 50 years, the total cost of ownership is lower than commonly expected.
