Biofuel production from microalgae as feedstock: current status and potential.
Algal biofuel has become an attractive alternative of petroleum-based fuels in the past decade. Microalgae have been proposed as a feedstock to produce biodiesel, since they are capable of mitigating CO2 emission and accumulating lipids with high pro

Microalgae as sustainable renewable energy feedstock for biofuel production.
The world energy crisis and increased greenhouse gas emissions have driven the search for alternative and environmentally friendly renewable energy sources. According to life cycle analysis, microalgae biofuel is identified as one of the major renewa

Aquatic plant Azolla as the universal feedstock for biofuel production.
The quest for sustainable production of renewable and cheap biofuels has triggered an intensive search for domestication of the next generation of bioenergy crops. Aquatic plants which can rapidly colonize wetlands are attracting attention because of

Stability and genetic control of morphological, biomass and biofuel traits under temperate maritime and continental conditions in sweet sorghum (Sorghum bicolour).
Eight morphological, biomass and biofuel traits were found with high broad-sense heritability and 18 significant QTLs discovered including one locus controlling the stem juice trait for sorghum grown in Denmark and China. Sweet sorghum with tall plan

Screening microalgae isolated from urban storm- and wastewater systems as feedstock for biofuel.
Exploiting microalgae as feedstock for biofuel production is a growing field of research and application, but there remain challenges related to industrial viability and economic sustainability. A solution to the water requirements of industrial-scal

Growth and biochemical composition of filamentous microalgae Tribonema sp. as potential biofuel feedstock.
Filamentous oleaginous microalgae Tribonema minus have advantages in relatively easy harvesting and grazers resistance in mass cultivation due to its filaments in previous study. To evaluate whether the genus Tribonema is a valuable candidate for use

Dual potential of microalgae as a sustainable biofuel feedstock and animal feed.
The rise in global population has led to explorations of alternative sources of energy and food. Because corn and soybean are staple food crops for humans, their common use as the main source of dietary energy and protein for food-producing animals d

Process energy comparison for the production and harvesting of algal biomass as a biofuel feedstock.
Harvesting and drying are often described as the most energy intensive stages of microalgal biofuel production. This study analyzes two cultivation and eleven harvest technologies for the production of microalgae biomass with and without the use of d

Evaluation of Physicochemical Properties of South African Cashew Apple Juice as a Biofuel Feedstock.
Cashew apple juice (CAJ) is one of the feedstocks used for biofuel production and ethanol yield depends on the physical and chemical properties of the extracted juice. As far as can be ascertained, information on physical and chemical properties of S

Fungal pretreatment of raw digested piggery wastewater enhancing the survival of algae as biofuel feedstock.
Understanding about the impact of white rot fungi on indigenous bacterial communities, NH4+ and turbidity in digested piggery wastewater, will allow the optimization of wastewater treatment methods and its use as a feasible medium for algal growth. H
