Analysis of Flow Characteristics In Flexible Tube Photobioreactors In Oceans For Harvesting Algae
The depletion of fossil fuels on Earth is an alarming issue. Due to the serious energy crisis currently being faced, a new form of energy production needs to be implemented to replace fossil fuels. Algae cultivation has been shown to be a viable option for the production of biofuel. Flexible tube photo-bioreactors (FTPBRs) can be deployed in oceans for cultivation of algae. This research broadly aims at contributing to the development of a system to utilize ocean wave energy to power operational processes of FTPBRs.
