The purpose of writing this book is to justify the production of biofuels from algae to minimize the emissions of fossil fuel technologies to reduce their environmental effects. Moreover, the use of algae, to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions from the global CO2 cycle is an alternative to existing biomass conversion technologies. The book covers the most efficient algae-to-oil conversion technologies, fuel characterization, and their reflection on different technologies. It is our hope that the topics here will not only help the scientific community for a more thorough understanding of alternatives to fossil fuels but also the civil society at large as well as policymakers at national and international level.
Keywords: Algae, Algae to oil, Biofuel production, Energy Consumption, Harvesting, Species.
