Abstract

Microalgae have the highest efficiency in capture and exploit sunlight in the process of photosynthesis. The use of microalgae is very good in replacing raw materials for motorized vehicles and is useful for mitigating global warming problems. Because of this potential, the growth rate of microalgae must be considered properly for population stability. Factors such as light and nutrient provision are important components that must be considered in the growth rate of microalgae. This study aims to determine the light and nutrient factors that affect the growth rate of microalgae. This study uses a literature review method with a narrative approach, secondary data obtained from articles, journals, or scientific papers accessed through an online database. The results of this study, light factor and nutrients have an important role in the growth rate of microalgae
