  • About the Edition

    This volume covers and updates the “hot” topic of biofuels, with numerous international meetings, conferences, congresses, and books on biofuels. Our 61 experts from several countries contributed 26 chapters to The Science of Algal Fuels. Each chapter has been composed as a review article and contains many references for further studies and has been peer reviewed. The target audience of this volume is workers in biofuels, graduate students in biochemistry and lecturers of phycology and biochemistry of the algal world. Algae, seaweeds and cyanobacteria, who are our stars in this book, live in marine and terrestrial habitats and require the Sun for energy, CO2 and aqueous surroundings. Since it is easy to culture algae in a large scale and they yield abundant biomass in a short period, there are farms that grow them in ponds for extracting their natural products. Micro and macro (seaweeds) can produce cheap and plentiful biofuel, biodiesel, or ethanol. The phycological yield to synthesize ethanol is 7.5 times higher than from a similar area of a sugar cane field. Biofuel (such as algal products) may soon be cheaper than the commercial pumping of underground and sea bottom fossil-oil, which causes more air pollution and depends upon political decisions from unstable countries. Industry seeks cheaper and more stable sources of fuel and algal fuel might be a good solution. Thus biofuel (biodiesel, oils, ethanol) might free us from unstable regimes with their “dark gold” sources, and from up and down oil prices. Unfortunately we have not yet reached this level as yet in spite of numerous contestants in this developing research. The industry is at present not in full gear to produce a substantial yield of biofuel from algae. Algal fuel is still a long range of strategy that will involve more R&D. Our hope is that this book will encourage the workers in this field to reach this “promised land” of algal biofuels in the not too distant future.

    The conversion of algal biomass into liquid fuels provides a long-term sustainable option for fuels production, which can be achieved in an environmentally compatible manner. Among the microalgal conversion methods, thermochemical conversion, which can make full use of all components in the algae, is viewed as one of the best conversion methods 5 hours ago  NIT Scientists Working To Develop Biofuel From Micro-Algae The NIT Tiruchirappalli researchers will formulate a road map by which biodiesel can be produced commercially and can be put in

      Overall, this report from EBI is the most comprehensive survey to date that we’ve seen on the economics, and technical challenges for algal fuels. So it is worth taking a long look at the authors’ conclusion that “the building of hectare demonstration plants, with investments of tens to hundreds of millions of dollars, are premature.” Sustainable Development of Algal Biofuels in the United States () Chapter: Summary.
