Abstract

A good understanding of population dynamics can give relevant insights and process understanding to improve the production of microalgae. To this end, population balance modelling (PBM) can be used to study population dynamics that can provide information such as the size distribution of cells. This detail can then be used to comprehend whether and how certain process strategies are beneficial to the population growth. The objective of this work is to understand how different cell removal strategies can affect the production of microalgae, using a model-based approach.
