Abstract: Cultivation of phototrophic microorganisms occurs often in closed photobioreactors (PBR). Thereby, the distribution of light inside PBR is a key factor for phototrophic growth and reactor productivity. To predict local light intensities, it is often assumed that the absorption rate is constant in space, and scattering by microorganisms is negligible. The present contribution aims to present a hybrid model to simulate fluid flow characteristics and its impact on light fields in a bubble column PBR. First, numerical simulations of bubble column flow have been performed. Afterwards, the computed local air volume fractions have been used to obtain local radiation characteristics of the gassed suspension, and polychromatic light fields were computed and compared to the optically homogeneous case.
