Abstract


The paper presents an overview of the biofuels obtained from algae. Algae-based biofuel definitely has the potential to revolutionize the energy industry and will play a leading role in fight against greenhouse gas emissions, and climate change. Biofuels production from algae definitely deserves more attention in years to come due its potential: do not transform food into fuel like with corn or soy, fewer emissions involved when compared to fossil fuels. Biofuel production from algae could be one of the surprising competitors on alternative energy market in not so long future, especially if oil’s price continues to grow.
