Author(s): Mahya Mohammadi, Morteza Azizollahi-Aliabadi

"Technology for creating also applying biodiesel has been recognized for more than 50 years. Microalgae are a various type of prokaryotic as well as eukaryotic photosynthetic microorganisms that grow rapidly due to their simple structure. Biodiesel is considered as a renewable fuel because it can be obtained from the transformation of vegetable oils, cooking greases or animal fats. Microalgae are sunlight-driven cell factories that convert carbon dioxide to potential biofuels, foods, nourish also high-value bioactives. In addition, these photosynthetic microorganisms are beneficial in bioremediation applications nitrogen fixing biofertilizers. This article focuses on microalgae as a potential source of biodiesel."
