Sensor technology fusion for on-line monitoring and control

The establishment of algae based production processes for application in different goods such as food, feed, nutritional supplements, medicine, fuel or platform chemicals is increasingly gaining more attention. A main reason for this development might be due to the crescent need to replace conventional industrial processes with more sustainable ways of production.

The kick-off meeting of DigitAlgaesation project

The kick-off meeting of the ITN project DigitAlgaesation will be held in Padova on 15 th October 2021. DigitAlgaesation is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and is coordinated by prof. Fabrizio Bezzo (Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Padova). The project aims at defining a digitalisation approach to optimising

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,
