Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue came as the natural consequence of the great success of the previous one Algae Fuel.

Fast growing, oil producing algae are recognized as one of the most promising biomass feedstock for production of biofuels and bioproducts. Despite the many advances made over several decades, commercialization of algal fuels remains challenging chiefly because of the techno-economic constrains and lack of understanding of life cycle impacts. This special issue is to solicit high quality, original research contributions on all aspects of algae to fuels technologies, including but not limited to strain selection and development, cultivation techniques and facilities, harvest, downstream processing, product development, techno-economic analysis, and life cycle analysis.
