Title
(EN) AN APPARATUS FOR MASS CULTIVATION OF MICRO ALGAE AND A METHOD FOR CULTIVATING THE SAME
(FR) APPAREIL DE CULTURE EN MASSE DE MICROALGUES ET PROCÉDÉ POUR LEUR CULTURE
Abstract
(EN) An apparatus for cultivating photosynthetic microorganisms comprising a culture tank (51) containing the microorganisms grown in a culture broth fed with carbon sources and nutrients via one or more inlets (60, 61, 62); and one or more circulating means (54, 55, 56) located in the tank (51) for projecting the broth vertically from the bottom of the tank (51 ) up to the surface of the tank (51) and circulating the broth downwards to allow momentary exposure of the microorganisms to light; wherein the operation of the inlet (60, 61, 62) and the circulating means (54, 55, 56) is regulated according to a selected cultivation mode.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de culture de microorganismes photosynthétiques, qui comprend une cuve de culture (51) qui contient les microorganismes que l'on fait croître dans un bouillon de culture alimenté en sources de carbone et en nutriments par une ou plusieurs admissions (60, 61, 62) et un ou plusieurs moyens de recirculation (54, 55, 56) situés dans la cuve (51), qui projettent le bouillon verticalement depuis la base de la cuve (51) jusqu'à la surface de la cuve (51) et qui font recirculer le bouillon vers le bas pour permettre une exposition momentanée des microorganismes à la lumière, le fonctionnement de l'admission (60, 61, 62) et des moyens de recirculation (54, 55, 56) étant régulé en fonction d'un mode de culture sélectionné.
