  • Raúl Muñoz Instituto de Procesos Sostenibles, Universidad de Valladolid, España


Algal biotechnology represents a very versatile platform for environmental applications, contributing to heavy metal removal, organic matter stabilization and nutrient valorization from wastewaters, carbon dioxide capture and sustainable biofuel production. Biodiesel, biohydrogen, biogas and bioethanol constitute the main energy vectors obtained from microalgae. This short communication reviews the potential of microalgae for biofuel production.
