2008). The main limitations of open systems are inherent to their operating principles. First, they are exposed to high risks of biological contamination by other microalgae species, bacteria, and/or predators owing to the direct contact of the culture with the atmosphere. Therefore, only resistant species can be cultivated for long periods of time. The large interface between the culture and the atmosphere also renders the control of culture conditions difficult. For example, it is difficult to maintain an optimal temperature although open systems are less subject to overheating than closed systems.
