Paddlewheel ARID Algae Raceway
This invention is an Algae Raceway Integrated Design (ARID) that improves upon the conventional paddlewheel raceway. The raceway's center airbag deflates at night, which allows the raceway to drain into a deep canal at night. Background: Open pond systems are the most common method of cultivating algae and typically consist of shallow ponds where...
