By Barnabas Gikonyo

Due to their excessive development price, algae, microalgae, and aquatic crops have gotten the main promising photosynthetic organisms for biofuel creation. Advances in Biofuel construction: Algae and Aquatic Plants explores present investigations and alertness of the fields of biofuel creation and bioengineering and considers from a world context the evolving methods of algal biofuel creation. The e-book appears at how biomass, in particular sugars, nonedible plant fabrics, and algae (which are special first, moment, and 3rd fuels respectively) are utilized in the construction of gas. The feasibility of such tasks, present methodologies, and the way to optimize biofuel construction are presented.

Further efforts on microalgae biodiesel production should focus on reducing costs in large-scale algal biomass production systems. Combining microalgae mixotrophic cultivation with sequestration of CO2 from flue gas and wastewater treatment, and taking the biorefinery approach to algal biomass conversion will improve the environmental and economic viability. 16 Advances in Biofuel Production: Algae and Aquatic Plants REFERENCES 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
