Indoor and outdoor production systems are used for microalgae culture systems. Tubular photobioreactors (PBR) have effective and successful production as closed-space systems. The green microalgae Scenedesmus dimorphus, which is rich in protein and fatty acids, was produced in a closed field culture system with a pilot-scale tubular photobioreactor without disturbing the colony structure of the cells. In the obtained data, the maximum cell number was determined as 74.2x106 and the specific growth rate was 0.22.
