Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2009094680A1] The invention relates to a method and a device for a photochemical, such as photocatalytic and/or photosynthetic process, particularly for the breeding and production or hydrocultivation of preferably phototrophic microorganisms. A reactor, particularly a biosolar reactor (1), comprising at least one reactor element (2), is provided. The reactor element (2) is formed by two perpendicular pipes (3) connected at the bottom. Furthermore, an inlet (4) and an outlet (5) are provided at the upper reactor edge. The meander-shaped conductance of the reaction medium (6) is carried out perpendicularly or inclined at an angle at least once from the top down or in the direction of gravity, and from the bottom up or against the direction of gravity. Both the introduction and removal of the reaction medium (6) into and from the reactor are preferably carried out continuously, without pressure and freely to the atmosphere via the upper reaction medium surface, wherein due to the hydrostatic pressure compensation and leveling a flow of the reaction medium (6) that is stress-free for the microorganisms is produced.
