Title: AN ALGAL CULTIVATION SYSTEM AND A PROCESS FOR BIOMASS PRODUCTION
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to an algal cultivation system comprising an algal pond (202). The algal pond (202) comprises a growth chamber (206a) containing algal culture which is exposed to light to enable rapid growth of algae therein, and a regeneration chamber (206b) which is substantially devoid of light and configured to provide a residence time to algal culture for repair of damaged proteins of algal cells. The present disclosure also relates to a process for biomass production, comprising circulating algal culture using convection current or forced convection, between the growth chamber (206a, 10) and the regeneration chamber (206b, 12). The system and process facilitate in increasing biomass and mitigating salinity and/or temperature variations in the algal culture (A).
