The resulting ability to predict these separation properties has revolutionized Algal Reactor Design Based on Comprehensive Modeling of Light and Mixing 29 the petroleum industry, and is the cornerstone of all petrochemical processes. The approaches introduced by Holland et al. (Holland et al. 2011; Holland and Wheeler 2011), further detailed in this chapter, hold the potential to provide such model for industrial algal biomass production processes, guiding bioreactor design and parameterization to maximize biomass and lipid productivity.

As for bacterial cultures, monitoring the algal biomass concentration is easily done by correlating dry weight and optical density at 680 nm (or other wavelength in the 500–700 nm range) using a spectrophotometer without correcting for scatter (Holland et al. 2011). 44 A. D. Holland and J. M. 1 Fluorescence Response In an algal culture, the absorbed photons are either processed into biomass through the generation of an electron flow or dissipated (as chlorophyll fluorescence or heat). Photosynthetic electron transport can be modeled as a two-phase process.
