Turbulent flows for the offshore macroalgae biorefinery
Our group collaborates with Dr. Alexander Golberg group from the Porter School of Environmental Studies on the marine biorefinery idea: https://m.tau.ac.il/~agolberg/MBR.html
Hadar Traugott studies hydrodynamic effects (pressure, hydromechanical shear stresses) on the macroalgae growth rates and chemical content.
Meiron Zollmann focuses on the nutrients uptake and growth rates in the laboratory and natural offshore environments
Oz Habiby has been working on the pulsed light concept in our lab, growing algae in a hypothetical light/dark cycle using LED sun simulator.
