Abstract

Chlorella vulgaris is a single-celled of green algae that are spherical in shape and do not have flagella, which can be found in freshwater. It is fast-growing green algae and has different lipid production capabilities (30–40% of dry weight) under natural conditions. In the present study, the microalgae were grown in NGP medium. It was tested to grow in different combinations amount of fertilizer and Organisol (growth promoter) as an improvement to the original NGP medium. Results showed that C. vulgaris had the highest growth rate when the NGP supplied with combination of 0.13ml L-1 growth promoter and 2.0g L-1 fertilizer. Using this nutrient combination, the algal was mass cultured outdoor in aquariums. The lipid yield produced after 26 days of cultivation was about 2.17%.
