The research studies in the past focusing on finding new energy sources, were based on biodiesels which reduce thegreenhouse effect by 41% when compared with diesels. Due to this fact, many contries in the world have exemptedbiodiesel from taxes and encouraged their production and consumption. However, in Turkey, increase in productiontaxes, and because the producers can only sell their products to distribution firms, the attractiveness of biodiesel hasdecreased tremendously and could only been developed to the limits provided by the studies of related departments ofthe univercities.Microalgae carbon dioxide and sunlight through photosynthesis converts it to energy very efficiently, and in thisprocess the oil-producing single-cell biological organisms. Just like any other plant-based oils such as algae oilbiodiesel converted directly used as a fuel for diesel engines. Today, experienced negative effects due to oil and oil toeliminate the negative effects to the environment is given a new, clean and cheap energy resources, and these resourceshave to be used effectively. With a high fat binding properties of micro-organisms, especially microalgae energy crisison behalf of the resort, be worth studying.The recent research studies focused on alga cultures which are blue, red, green in color and are transforming CO2 toO2 in the ecosystem. The research studies on algs are implemented under two topics which are namely alg productionand possibilities of using algs as fuel.In this study, species of Dunaliella salina, Palmellopsis muralis and colored light sources with different wavelengthsusing the 24-hour period of enlightenment, subjected to constant light intensity of cultivation under the analyzedparameters. The second experiment using white light illumination of different periods of growth parameters, cellnumber, pH, salinity and conductivity values were measured and analyzed. The third attempt, the temperature in thesame way using white light and under constant light intensity, respectively, 21°C, 28°C and 35oC growth parameterswere investigated. Finally, using white light source and 12 hours light and dark periods within 12 hours, applying adifferent light intensity, cell numbers, pH, salinity and conductivity values were analyzed and compared.
