Abstract in Portuguese
Realizou-se um estudo do processo descontínuo alimentado de fermentação, buscando encontrar as melhores condições de produção do ácido graxo gama-linolênico. Empregou-se como fonte de nitrogênio no meio de fermentação a uréia, que foi adicionada de forma exponencialmente crescente e como inóculo usou-se uma cepa de Spirulina platensis. Utilizou-se planejamento experimental e aplicou-se a metodologia de superfície de resposta, o qual permitiu a obtenção de equações que relacionaram as variáveis dependentes, como produtividade em células, conversão de nitrogênio em células, concentração máxima atingida de biomassa, porcentagem relativa de produção de ácido graxo gama-linolênico. com as variáveis independentes tempo de alimentação (Ta) e massa total de uréia adicionada (MUT). Os melhores resultados obtidos foram os seguintes: Px=117,26 mg/L.dia; Yx/n= 4,9; Xmax= 1759 mg/L e porcentagem de ácido graxo γ-linolênico na fração lipídica de 23,5 %, com 14 dias (Ta) e 1750 mg (MUT).

Abstract in English
A Study on the fed-batch fermentation process was made seeking for the best Gamma-linolenic production condition. Mineral media was employed with urea as nitrogen source that was add with exponentially increasing feeding rates and Spirulina platensis as inoculum. Experimental design and a Response Surface Methodology were applied. It was composed by an experimental design which allowed a reduced number of the experiments and by the analysis of the results using equations which combined the interest variables dependent as: Productivity, best Gamma-linolenic production condition, Nitrogen convertion in Biomass, Highest Concentration and the study variables independent (Ta-feeding time and add urea-MUT). The best results were with (Ta-feeding time=14 days; add urea-MUT=1750 mg). In this conditions we had: Productivity=117,26 mg/L.day Best Gamma-linolenic production condition=23,5 per cent Nitrogen convertion in Biomass=4,9 Biggest Concentration.=1759 mg/L.
