Carbon dioxide requirements can be estimated from the expected biomass productivity of the raceway, accounting for the inevitable losses to the atmosphere as previously discussed (Chisti 2012). The demand for carbon dioxide varies with the rate of photosynthesis which is controlled by the irradiance. Therefore, the best strategy to ensure a sufficiency of carbon and minimize loss is to inject carbon dioxide in response to a signal from a pH controller (Chisti 2012). Periodic injection without automatic pH control may be feasible, depending on historical experience with a given alga and location (Becker 1994).

2011). Growth under alkaline pH may not be possible for oceanic algae as marine salts precipitate at pH values of >8 (Chisti 2012). In most cases, the carbon dioxide supplied is actually taken up by the alga as bicarbonate. Carbon dioxide requirements can be estimated from the expected biomass productivity of the raceway, accounting for the inevitable losses to the atmosphere as previously discussed (Chisti 2012). The demand for carbon dioxide varies with the rate of photosynthesis which is controlled by the irradiance.
