Biologically produced fuels are considered potential and viable alternatives to meet the world’s fuel requirements. In this context, algal-based oil is of significant importance due to its renewable and carbon-neutral nature. Biosynthesis of triglycerides by utilizing CO2 (by biofixation) or wastewater under stress conditions via photoautotrophic, heterotrophic (photo/dark), or mixotrophic mechanisms enumerates the potential of microalgae for generation of renewable biodiesel. In addition to the algal cultivation, the conversion of the accumulated lipids to biodiesel is gaining considerable

Extensive effort is being made globally to develop various biofuels as an inexhaustible and renewable energy source. Biofuels are viewed as promising alternatives to conventional fossil fuels because they have the potential to eliminate major environmental problems such as global warming and climate change created by fossil fuels. Among the still-developing biofuel technologies, biodiesel production from algae offers a good prospect for large-scale practical use, considering the fact that algae are capable of producing much more yield than other biofuels

Biofuel production from microalgae has been gaining importance in recent years as an alternative (nonpolluting) fuel source, but the industry faces economic challenges. In this context, a feasible technology of bio-oil production from microalgal biomass through fast pyrolysis is presented in this chapter. A microalga was cultivated in a cheap ethanol-wastewater-based medium, harvested, dried, and subjected to fast pyrolysis, the conditions of which were controlled to generate high yield of bio-oil. Bio-oil yield was 17.4% (m/m), with lower heating value (

There are several difficulties in developing algal biofuels that can fully replace fossil fuels; the main challenges relate to lower environmental impact (including the possibility of CO2 sequestering and wastewater treatment) and economic feasibility. To date, most studies have focused on selection of species, coupled with optimization of cultivation, biomass harvest and fuel extraction; efforts on enhancing environmental benefits and upgrading spent biomass are thus in order. Industry should indeed adopt an integrated strategy inspired by algal-based biorefineries – toward maximizing

Algae are currently being considered as a versatile feedstock for biofuel production because of their fast growth rate and high biomass productivity. Algae could simultaneously act as a carbon sink and water purifier if their cultivation were coupled with flue gas and wastewater treatment, respectively. Hence, an understanding of the overall supply chains for algal biofuel production is exceptionally important to determine whether it is worthwhile to scale up and commercialize algal cultivation for biofuel production. In this chapter, various

Fossil-fuel depletion and attempts at global-warming mitigation have motivated the development of biofuels. Several feedstock and transformation pathways into biofuel have been proposed as an alternative to the usual fuels. Recently, microalgae have attracted a good deal of attention because of the promise of reduced competition with food crops and lowered environmental impacts. Over the last years, several life-cycle assessments (LCAs) have been realized to evaluate the energy benefit and potential global-warming reduction of biofuel and bioenergy produced from microalgae.

Algal biomass is a fast-growing, renewable resource and a promising feedstock for advanced biofuels. Algal biofuels are generating considerable interest around the world. In the United States, they represent promising pathways for helping to meet the biofuel production targets set by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Algae are a diverse group of primarily aquatic organisms that are capable of using photosynthesis to generate biomass. Some algal strains are able to double their mass several times per day. In

Energy security, increasing oil prices, fossil resource depletion, and climate change are some of the greatest challenges faced by mankind at present. Third-generation biofuel feedstock and micro-and macroalgae have many advantages over the first and second generations of biofuels. In addition, defatted algae can also be used as a feedstock for production of hydrocarbons. Thermochemical methods are more efficient than any other routes for conversion of algae. Among thermochemical methods, hydrothermal upgradation is the most promising because it can process

Algae biomass has enormous potential to produce fuels and value-added products. Algae-derived biofuels and bioproducts offer great promise in contributing to U.S. energy security and in mitigating the environmental concerns associated with conventional fuels. Algae’s ability to grow in low quality water/wastewater and to accumulate lipids has encouraged scientists to investigate algae as a medium for wastewater treatment and a potential source of fuel and bioproducts. There are growing demands for biomass-based transportation fuels, including biodiesel, bio-oil,
