Renewable fuels production got great incentive recently, with fuel prices increase and more environmental issues concerns. Among raw materials available for biofuels, microalgae emerge as a sustainable alternative due high productivity and needlessness in land and water quality. Taking into account the growing interest in microalgae use as biodiesel raw this research aims to analyze rheological behaviour of microalgae suspensions (Chlorella sp) in different culture times, in order to estimate the energy demands of each step, aimed optimizing the a continuous-feed tubular bioreactor construction.
