In this paper, microalgae lipid extractions were performed using conventional organic solvent and supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-) for biodiesel-convertible lipid fractions. The highest levels (58.31%) of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) content in the lipid extracted by SC- was obtained, and 18.0 wt.% crude lipid yield was achieved for Bligh-Dyer method. In the SC- extraction, methanol as a co-solvent was applied to increase the polarity of extract. The experimental results indicated that crude lipid yield, FAME content and yield extracted by combination of SC- with methanol were 12.5 wt.%, 56.32% and 7.04 wt.%, respectively, and this method could reduce the extraction time from 2 hour to 30 min when compared to SC- extraction. Therefore, SC- extraction is proven to be an environmentally-friendly and an effective method for lipid extraction from microalgae.
