Lipid accumulation in potential C. vulgaris could be induced by controlling nitrogen concentration in optimum level. In this study, C. vulgaris and S. platensis were cultured in BG-11 medium in flat plate photobioreactor to assess biomass and lipid productivity. Colony composition 3: 2 (40%wt S. platensis) gives highest lipid yield (6.72%) in continuous illumination 3 000 lx compare to control sample (5.13%). This confirms that the existence of cyanobacteria induces lipid accumulation in C. vulgaris. Further study is needed to understand better biosynthesis in colony.
