Abstract


The presented Fibonacci-type tubular photobioreactor represents a significant advancement over classical tubular photobioreactors. It exhibits notable flexibility in its geometric design with the ability to adapt its parameters to meet the specific photosynthetic requirements of microalgae, thereby achieving maximum efficiency. As a result, it emerges as a viable alternative to conventional tubular systems. Furthermore, the strategy utilized for optimizing the design of Fibonacci-type photobioreactors is also described. This strategy is applied to design a 5000 L reactor, serving as a potential approach to harnessing these reactors for the industrial-scale production of high-value microalgae with commercial significance.
