Summary: The following is an article about the design and construction of a tubular photobioreactor to produce microalgae Chlorella sp. using combustion gases from a fuel-oil boiler. The reactor was build for the treatment of 50 L min-1 of gas and contained a pretreatment for minimizing the sulfur dioxide presented in the combustion gases. The final maximum biomass concentration of 0.574 g/L was obtained. Finally, a proportional scale-up was carried out for a photobioreactor, which was fed with the total flow of gases from the boiler. The same would require 39 062 m2 of available area and would produce 333 kg of dry mass at the end of the growth phase.
