Fossil fuel energy resources are depleting rapidly and most importantly the liquid fossil fuel will be diminished by the middle of this century. Production of biofuel from renewable sources is considered to be one of the most sustainable alternatives to petroleum sourced fuel. Biofuel from algae is an environmentally friendly energy source fuel produced through transesterification with short chain alcohols. The global market for biofuel has been growing rapidly during the past few years, and is poised for explosive growth in the next years. Biofuel production from algae can provide some distinctive advantages such as their rapid growth rate, greenhouse gas fixation ability and high production capacity of lipids. It reduces greenhouse emissions by 30-50% compared with than fossil fuels. This paper reviews the current status of biofuel from algae as a renewable source.
