Algae are autotrophic micro-organisms capable of converting CO₂ into carbohydrates and lipids in the presence of light by photosynthesis. Micro algae are cultivated for the treatment of domestic and industrial waste water and also for CO₂ sequestration.

Many studies were carried out in the areas of CO₂ sequestration using algae. This includes methane, biodiesel and bio-hydrogen. There are many advantages for producing biofuel from algae as microalgae can produce 15 to times more biodiesel than traditional crop on area basis.

The harvesting cycle of microalgae is very short and growth rate is very : Robin Khan. This paper reviews the current status of microalgae use for biodiesel production, including their cultivation, harvesting, and processing. The microalgae species most used for biodiesel production are presented and their main advantages described in comparison with other available biodiesel feedstocks.

Betenbaugha, George A. Oylerd,e,2,*. Microalgae can be extensively used to capture CO2 from power plants, steel, cement, oil, automobiles and many other industries and the resulting algal biomass can be not only used for biofuel.

Microalgae have been experimented as a potential feedstock for biofuel generation in current era owing to its’ rich energy content, inflated growth rate, inexpensive culture approaches, the notable capacity of CO2 fixation, and O2 addition to the environment. Currently, research is ongoing towards the advancement of microalgal-biofuel technologies.

The nano-additive application has been Cited by: 7. Owing to their vast diversity and high growth rate, microalgae offer numerous advantages as the most promising photosynthetic organisms for biofuel production and CO2 bio-sequestration.

Two different processes have been proposed for these purposes. Biofuel from microalgae can be processed by using thermochemical and biochemical conversion. The thermochemical process can be divided into gasification, liquefaction, pyrolysis, and direct combustion; meanwhile the biochemical process can be divided into anaerobic digestion, fermentation, and photobiological : Kurniadhi Prabandono, Sarmidi Amin.

ISBNThe book discusses efficient methods for cultivation, improvement of harvesting and lipid extraction techniques, optimization of conversion/production processes of fuels and co-products, the integration of microalgae biorefineries to several industries, environmental resilience by microalgae, and a techno-economic and lifecycle analysis of the.

Therefore, the production price of biomass must be reduced by a factor of ~9 so that the production of biofuels from microalgae is feasible. It should be noted, however, that this analysis does not take into account the potential for biomass residuals and, on the other hand, the cost of converting biomass may be lower than that of oil (6).Cited by: 4.

ISSN: Subject.The Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) operates an approximately MWe coal fired-power plant at Stanton Energy Center (SEC), which was the site for this project to develop an integrated process for microalgae utilization of flue gas CO 2 for the production of biofuels and animal feeds.

Microalgae have both potentially high yields (tons biomass/acre-year) and can be used for biofuels or high.dioxide (CO₂). Although techniques are well acquainted and applied for CO₂ sequestrations but the use of microalgae for sequestration of CO 2 is considered to be an energy efficient process.

Over the years, the most productive system of This advantage makes biodiesel production from algal biomass more.
