The biomass composition of Chlorella minutissima 26a was evaluated in different conditions for the microalgae cultured in landfill leachate in airlift photobioreactor operated in semi-continuous mode. The effects of the following factors in cells composition were evaluated: landfill leachate concentration (LC), CO2 percentual flow added in the gas stream (GP), aeration flow in the reactor (AF) and feed flowrate (FR). A Taguchi L9 orthogonal arrangement was used to evaluate the effects of those four factors on the following response variables: Biomass Productivity (BP), Lipid Productivity (LP), Carbohydrate Productivity (CP) and Proteins Productivity (PP). Results showed that the microalgae had high selectivity to produce proteins, reaching a maximum content of 69,60% in the following conditions: LC: 10%, GP: null, AF: 0,30 vvm and FR: 0.9 µmax vvm. The highest contents of lipid and carbohydrate were 17.4% (LC: 15%, GP: null, AF: 0,45 vvm and FR: 0.7 µmax vvm) and 11.6% (LC: 10%, GP: 15%, AF: 0,15 vvm and FR: 0.7 µmax vvm.), respectively, both values achieved at the two experiment with the highest values of specific growth rate (0.44 d-1 and 0.47 d-1, respectively). Statistical analysis showed LC was the most influential factor in the cell chemical composition, being significant (p<0,1) in the productivity of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates, with high values observed using between 5 and 10% of LC in the medium. GP did not show significance for any response studied, while the variables AF and FR showed significance in the productivity of proteins.
