Book Details

Algal Biofuel: sustainable solution explores a wide spectrum of bioenergy sources, including their applications. It provides latest information in the field of bioenergy technologies and their future prospect including lipid content. It discusses governance of biofuel at global and national level and the potential of biofuel to meet the rising energy demand. The book focuses towards the strategies to ensure the availability of algal biomass, effective cultivation and harvesting techniques. The strategies to enhance the algal lipid synthesis and its conversion for biodiesel production have been elaborated. Issues related to wastes (agricultural/solid/wastewater) management and biofuel production applications have also been discussed at length. The book covers advance microalgal lipid biochemistry and its biodiesel conversion process along with progressive trends in research and development and policy framework in algal biofuel sector.
