Microalgae Process Design - from cells to photobioreactors
11 - 18 July 2014 AlgaePARC, Wageningen, the Netherlands
This course provides the essential skills for designing optimal microalgae-based production processes, for both research and commercial purposes. Through lectures, digital cases and a photobioreactor practical, the participants will learn: 1) how to describe microalgal metabolism quantitatively, 2) how to apply basic design principles and set up mass/energy balances for photobioreactors, 3) how to cultivate microalgae in fully controlled photobioreactors, and 4) how to integrate all acquired knowledge into optimal production strategies for microalgae biomass or secondary metabolites.
The course is very popular and places are limited, so if you are interested, please subscribe soon!
