Abstract: A novel configuration of photobioreactor is described in which filaments of alginate containing immobilized cells of a leaky mutant of Dunaliella parva are wound round a central light well which is located within a glass outer chamber so that a liquid medium is caused to flow in the annular space between the outside chamber and the alginate filaments. Glycerol production by D. parva was maintained for 700 h and the highest concentration of glycerol attained was approx. 12 mg l-1.
