This chapter focuses on the production of microalgae-based biodiesel, which has been the most studied biofuel from this promising feedstock. This chapter highlights the advantages of the microalgal biomass to produce third-generation biodiesel compared to oleaginous crops (first generation) and to other raw materials (second generation). The differences between the microalgae-based biodiesel's properties with other feedstock are presented as well as the way to enhance the biomass and lipid productivities, the innovative methods/methodologies to lower production cost in all production steps, and a case study from the Eastern Mediterranean, and future trends.

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the production of microalgae-based biodiesel, which has been the most studied biofuel from this promising feedstock. This chapter highlights the advantages of the microalgal biomass to produce third-generation biodiesel compared to oleaginous crops (first generation) and to other raw materials (second generation). The differences between the microalgae-based biodiesel's properties with other feedstock are presented as well as the way to enhance the biomass and lipid productivities, the innovative methods/methodologies to lower production cost in all production steps, and a case study from the Eastern Mediterranean, and future trends.
