An analysis of fatty acid profile for production of biomass using the oil-rich microalgae Botryococcus sp. MCC30 and Chlorella sorokiniana MIC-G5 was performed, which included Flask cultivation, raceway pond and photobioreactor for microalgal cultivation. Both the cultures were grown for 33 days in different growth systems and were evaluated for growth daily. The results showed that in both the microalgal cultures, raceway pond has not only shown maximum biomass yield but also accounts for maximum fatty acid methyl esters, and thus raceway system of mass cultivation considered economically feasible for biofuel production.

Keywords: Microalgae, Photobioreactor, Raceway, Biomass, Fatty acid methyl ester, Biofuel.
