Endlightplates as Alternative Lightsource for Micro and Macro Algae - Building up of a New Light-System for the Cultivation of Phototrophic Organism

T. Loher, A. Peterhansl & G. Becker
Aim of this work is the development and construction of a new light system for photo bio reactors to reduce exhaust heating and energy costs of conventional illuminating growth systems on halogen basis. As characteristic illuminant source SMD LEDs (Type LF05CE) became boarded to an acrylic glas plate and were mounted to an aluminum profile with integrated cooling grooves. The acrylic glas system could successfully perform a reduction of lamp induced heating within a seaweed...
