The multiscale nature of microalgae processes

Microalgae processes exhibit a remarkable complexity due to the interaction of multiple phenomena that span multiple time scales, ranging from milliseconds to days, and from nanometres to hundreds of meters in industrial plants, involving quantum phenomena, cell metabolism, turbulence and fluid flow behaviour, light diffusion, mass and energy transport phenomena, interactions with the equipment design,

The digitalgaesation project

The quest for sustainable sources for chemicals, fuels, and food is one of the great challenges facing humanity. Biotechnology stands up as one of the most promising approaches for delivering effective keys to disclose the route towards different production paradigms. The exploitation of photosynthesis is particularly appealing: an inexhaustible source of energy (light) and a
