"Energy consumption due to mixing and mass transfer in a wave photobioreactor" - Sarah M.J. Jones, Tobias M. Louw, Susan T.L. Harrison

  • Wave bioreactors show good mixing and mass transfer.
  • Rocking rate and rocking angle affect mixing, mass transfer and energy consumption.
  • Wave bioreactors are suitable for microalgal cultivation.
  • Energy consumption can be reduced to a critical minimum.
  • Wave bioreactors may be an alternative to sparged photobioreactors.
