Modelling and Optimization of Combined Wastewater Treatment and CO2 Bio-fixation in a Batch Algal Photobioreactor
MetadataShow full item record
The research focuses on investigation and optimization (using Box Behnken design) of the key parameters of CO2 gas concentration, light intensity, temperature, feedwater nutrient concentration, and wastewater origin (municipal primary and secondary, and petroleum industry) on photobioreactor algal growth parameters. A mathematical model is provided for predicting algal growth. Finally, the influence of light wavelength on algal growth is investigated. The outcomes can be used to inform design and operation of large-scale algal cultivation systems.

The distribution pattern of algal flora in saline lakes in Kambalda and Esperance, Western AustraliaHandley, Michelle Anne (2003)The study has attempted to characterise the physicochemical limnology and distribution of algal flora of two salt lake systems in Western Australia, one from the coastal Esperance region and the other from the inland ...
Saunders, Ben; Harvey, Euan; Kendrick, G. (2013)Many pomacentrid fishes spawn demersally, often onto nest sites of filamentous algae. The temperate Western Australian pomacentrid P. mccullochi spawns onto such nest sites. During preliminary observations nest sites with ...
Temperate territorial damselfish act like tropical damselfish, but have no measurable effect on algae within their feeding areasSaunders, Ben; Kendrick, G.; Harvey, Euan (2015)Areas of high habitat heterogeneity support a high diversity of fauna in both terrestrial and aquatic systems. In altering the rate of consumption of benthic communities, tropical damselfish affect the rate and trajectory ...
