Designing bioreactors: Thinking in and out of a box

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


A vertical flat-plate bioreactor is designed to grow photosynthesizing cyanobacteria to assimilate carbon dioxide. Its long-term application is to capture CO2 emitted by electric power plants to minimize its release into the atmosphere and to help mitigate global warming. The cyanobacteria are fed with liquid nutrients being re-circulated within the bioreactor.
