About the book
Biofuels are the most awaited products of scientific research. Fossil fuels are being exhausted and pollution is increasing globally. Microbes like algae, bacteria and fungi can act as miniature factories that yield a variety of substance which have the property to act as sources of eco-friendly biofuels. Advancements in the production of the biofuels will facilitate rapid commercialization of biofuels and will lead a step to conserve our natural resources and save our environment.
The book will elaborate the unique acumen of biofuel and the associated issues. Microbial technology has enormous potential, not only for biofuels but also for food, feed, renewable chemicals and many other products that are critical for a more sustainable society. Technological developments, including advances in photo-bioreactor design, microalgal biomass harvesting, drying, and other downstream processing technologies are important areas that may lead to enhanced cost-effectiveness and therefore, effective commercial implementation of the biofuel from microalgae strategy. Improvisation in biofuels mediated by algal will pave the path for commercialization of these fuels as an environmentally friendly energy source.
