Abstract:

Rapid industrialization and high population growth are two major reasons contributing to the global energy crisis. Today, almost 88% of worldwide energy consumption is a consequence of the combustion of fossil fuels. Biofuel production from renewable energy sources is largely considered as one of the most sustainable strategies to shift from petroleum based fuels and a considerable means for environmental and economic sustainability. Microalgae are recently being regarded as an ideal third-generation biofuel feedstock because of their fast growth rate, the high lipid production ability and capacity to fix CO2. These also do interfere with food or feed crops and can be grown on non-agricultural land. In this review, the use of microalgae for biodiesel and bioethanol production, including their cultivation, harvesting, and processing to yield biofuels will be discussed.
