Development of sensors and instrumentation for algae production systems


Work description

The production of biomass in a sustainable way is increasingly a necessity to meet current needs. In this project it is intended to make an optimal production of algae using a water circuit from fish aquaculture. This production optimization will have real-time monitoring with specific sensors and an actuator control system. This scholarship aims to study and develop optical solutions for monitoring water parameters including turbidity and dissolved carbon dioxide.
