The present work starts from a previous experiment where a culture medium for Dunaliella tertiolecta is developed, aiming its use as biofuel feedstock. The effect of the addition of fertilizer NPK-10: 26: 26, NaCl, NaOH, and the intensity of light incident on algal biomass growth, lipid productivity and CO2 sequestration were analyzed. The experimental data set, is first graphed using the graphical outputs of Engineering Equation Solver (EES), then is adjusted into an Adaptive Neuro Diffuse Inference System (ANFIS), obtaining a simulation of the cultivation process which is an easy to use and very accurate tool for instant evaluation of the process under study. The obtained ANFIS facilitates the analysis of the simultaneous influence of independent variables on the output variables. It is thus shown that the most recent computational facilities are of fundamental interest for the analysis of fermentative processes and in particular to model the cultivation of microalgae to be used as fuel feedstock. The results of the ANFIS model are compared with the experimental data and the effective evaluation of the performed simulation is proved.
