Abstract: Microalgae oil of the species Chlorella protothecoides was obtained via a donation of the Soley Biotechnology Institute (SOLEYBIO) and characterized according to the fatty acid profile. Ethylic biodiesel was prepared using methods adapted by the research group. Analysis of acidity, water content, and density and viscosity temperature dependence (293.15 K to 368.15 K) were performed for the oil and ethylic biodiesel. The biofuel was characterized in terms of its flash and cloud points, heat capacity and cetane number. The properties studied were compared with conventional vegetable oils and biodiesel, presenting little differences and demonstrating the high viability of biodiesel from microalgae oil
