Continued use of petroleum sourced fuels is now widely recognized as unsustainable because of depleting supplies and the contribution of these fuels to the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the environment. Renewable, carbon neutral, transport fuels are necessary for environmental and economic sustainability. Biodiesel derived from oil crops is a potential renewable and carbon neutral alternative to petroleum fuels. Unfortunately, biodiesel from oil crops, waste cooking oil and animal fat… Expand

TLDR
The first use of microalgae by humans dates back 2000 years to the Chinese, who used Nostoc to survive during famine, while future research should focus on the improvement of production systems and the genetic modification of strains. Expand

TLDR
Better prospects appear to exist for producing polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of both the n-6 and n-3 series, using either bacteria, fungi or algae, as well as cerebroside lipids and other unusual lipids that are not normally regarded as being of microbial origin. Expand
