In this study, we carried out the development of high performance photobioreactor, which can be used to develop the biological fixation technology as well as the renewable biofuels, the microalgae Botryococcus braunii. When B. Braunii was cultured in Anti-biofouling photobioreator, growth rate of it showed about 3 times higher than that of bubble column photobioreactor at the same conditions. In case of photobioreactor without bead, after 3 days culture time, biofouling occur rapidly in wall of the photobioreactor. However, with bead 5% (V/V), biofouling do not occur all experimental days.
