The modern state of constructing laboratory, pilot and industrial photobioreactors (PBI) is considered. The evolution of constructions of laboratory PBI double-dish, test tube or retort, from a flat construction, that are lighted up from outside, to the environment that contains light-emitting diodes is shown. It is pointed out that possibility of the artificial growing of some types of water-plants with high content lipids from which it is possible to get the so-called biodiesel gave a shove to development of industrial PBI. The constructions of these PBI also passed an evolutional way from the opened warm reservoirs to the closed capacity and tubular apparatus. It is considered, that the mass production of water-plant biodiesel can quickly work out the power problems of Ukraine, however the world level of the productivity of present industrial apparatus and simple business calculations resulted in the article does not allow to assert that in the near future a water-plant biodiesel fuel can cardinally work out the power problems of our country.

Key words: photobioreactor, construction, water-plant biodiesel fuel.
