Abstract:

The review briefly surveys data on production of biofuels (biodiesel and ethanol) and CO2 mitigation using microalgae available in literature. Different groups of algae described here with a view of their practical application for biofuel production. Particular attention in the review is given to mass cultivation of algae in open ponds and photobioreactors for biofuel generation and CO2 mitigation.
